None of the technologies available today has reached its full 100% capability. There is a long way to go for all these technologies. Thus, it can be said that IoT or Internet of Things is an important technology that can help all the other technologies to reach its full 100% potential.

But like every other thing in the world, even IoT comes with both benefits and limitations. It is important to have good knowledge of theses before investing in the Internet of Things

Benefits of IoT

IoT is known to provide you with several advantages in your daily life, especially in the business field. Some of the main benefits are;

  • Efficient resource utilization
    When we know the functionality or the way a device works, we can boost efficient resource utilization.
  • Save time
    It is also known to save human effort, and thus, it is time-saving as well. Time is one of the important factors of the IoT platform.
  • Reducing human effort
    IoT devices are known to communicate and interact with each other. They are capable of doing a lot of work for us, and thus, it is reducing the workload.

Limitations of IoT

The main limitations of IoT are as follows:

  • Security
    Since IoT devices are all interconnected over networks, it provides very limited security measures. This leaves the networks vulnerable to attacks.
  • Complexity
    Even the development, designing, maintaining, and enabling of the IoT system is quite complicated.
  • Privacy
    Even when you are not participating, the IoT system can provide your data in maximum details. This is one of the biggest problems with the system.

Well, now you know both the advantages and disadvantages of IoT systems. Despite all the drawbacks, it is still considered to be a big revolution.
