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 a technology that can help all the other technologies to reach its full 100% potential. First, it is important to understand what is IoT and how it works.
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:
Since IoT devices are all interconnected over networks, it provides very limited security measures. This leaves the networks vulnerable to attacks.
Even the development, designing, maintaining, and enabling of the IoT system is quite complicated.
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.
