IoT in Your Everyday Life

Internet of Things or IoT had initially emerged as a concept that would help businesses make their operations smart, and help them derive the best out of the available resources. But, over the last few years we are witnessing an evolution in IoT which is transforming your everyday life. Here we take a look at how Internet of Things would bring in dramatic changes to our lives.

Minimizing Energy Wastage

Heating, lighting and air conditioning systems have become basic necessities in the modern world. But, millions of units of energy are wasted each day around the world. Internet of Things connects your home and offices to smart grids that optimizes energy usage, and cuts down on the wastage. Further this can integrate solar and wind energy systems in your home with the grid, so that you can sell excess energy generated from these systems and cut down on your power bills.

Home Security

Does your home security bother you? IoT takes you beyond the realms of CCTV and other home security gadgets and helps create a smart home security system. Motion sensors would alert you on your smartphone and you would also have the option of streaming real time videos from your CCTV cameras anywhere in the world. This would allow you to keep an eye on your pets and young kids even when you are far away from your home.

Smart Home Locks

The days of hiding your key under the flower pot for your plumber or any other friend are over as you can make use of smart home locks. A single tap on your smartphone is all you need to let in someone inside your home irrespective of your location.

Wearable Gadgets

Wearable gadgets are one of the best examples of Internet of Things solutions. They would collect large volumes of data from your body every day and keep a record of your vitals. The smart app inside would warm you of any impending dangers to your health. These help you avoid lengthy & expensive treatments.

Smart Fridge

This is touted to be one of the most essential applications of IoT and something that many people around the world are looking forward to. A smart refrigerator keeps a tab on your food habits, and sends you notification on when you should fill in fresh supplies. Apart from creating your shopping list it would also be able to place orders with the local grocery store for fresh supplies.
