Hustle hard

We all dream differently, but there are quite a few things that come common in all our dreams like having smart homes which you can use to control the appliances to operate automatically. For example, the alarm should start ringing to alert us it’s time to get up or the pathway lights up the moment it senses our steps coming in. We wish many more things to happen and to make it a reality, the concept of The Internet of Things (IoT) is introduced.

What is IoT?
Well, the Internet of Things indicates the ever-growing network which is formed of physical objects which displays an IP address for internet connectivity and supports communication which happens between all these objects as well as other associated Internet-enabled devices or systems.

IoT is considered very important for many Businesses besides the consumers. It is vital to sense as well as collect data from the different connected devices, for sharing the data all across the internet for processing and utilization for multiple purposes and critical decisions. IoT, in short, offers the user's real-time information that was not possible earlier. We are now empowered to monitor and keep an eye on our homes as well as businesses and employees remotely to keep a check on the activities and for security. 

So how IoT works? 
Just in the similar manner in which Internet managed to change our way to work & communicate in the world, by connecting each one of us via the World Wide Web (internet), IoT too targets to take up this advantage of connectivity to whole new level by offering the advantage of connecting several devices at one time with the internet.  This is creating a facilitating connection between man to machine and also machine to machine for making interactions.

There are 4 major components involved in IoT and make it work:

• Sensor: The sensors capture essential data from the environment.  For example, Weather forecasting.

• Connectivity: Data need to be sent to the cloud using cellular, Wi-Fi, satellite, Bluetooth or connect directly via Ethernet with the Internet.

• Data Processing: Once it reaches the cloud software will process the collected information.

• User interface: The data to be shared must be useful. For example, it can send an alert to the user about the sudden snowfall which may start or about the increase in the humidity in the air.
