IOT: The Remote Control Of Your Life Is Now A Reality

IOT: The Remote Control Of Your Life Is Now A Reality

The Internet of Things, or IoT, is the network of physical devices, vehicles, and home appliances that contain embedded technology to communicate, sense, or interact with their internal states or the external environment.

Is your refrigerator running out of milk? Or butter?

The fridge is connected to the internet, and so are you.

Now that your refrigerator is connected to the internet, it can tell whether you're running out of milk or butter. It will send a signal to your smartphone through your WiFi network and ask if you want to order some more from Amazon Prime Now. Your smart home system will then turn on the TV for you to watch ads about how much better than cow's milk is almond milk, which is made from almonds (or soybeans).

Is your washing machine ready to start a load? Or finish?

With the right technology, you can control your washing machine no matter where you are. But first, let me ask you this: Is your washing machine ready to start a load? Or finish? How do you check its status? I'll tell you how.

You have to download an app for your phone and connect it to your home wifi network. Then all the appliances in your home can communicate with each other, so they will know what is going on at any given time. This means that when one device needs something from another, it will send a message saying, "Hello! The washing machine needs help! Please ensure that my door is closed properly so that water doesn't leak onto the floor when we start our cycle." The other appliances in your house will respond with either "I'm not available right now" or "sure thing! We'll take care of it!" If there is no response within 15 minutes, they assume no one else cares about them and go ahead without being cared for—such sad little things.

Has the dishwasher completed its cycle?

Now that you have a better idea of the Internet of Things and how it can improve our lives, let's look at one specific example. The dishwasher is an excellent way to understand how this technology works.

The first step in connecting your dishwasher to the internet is installing wifi technology. This can be done by purchasing an appliance with built-in connectivity or adding an adapter to your existing machine. Once this has been accomplished, all that needs to occur is to link your device up with a smartphone app (also called a "smart home" app). Once this initial setup work has been completed, you'll be able to control your appliance remotely via any connected device anywhere in the world!

Were the lights switched off when you left the house?

  • Use of sensors (e.g., motion sensors)
  • Use of RFID tags
  • Use of cameras (for remote surveillance)
  • Smart home appliances and devices such as TVs, lighting systems, etc.
  • Smart home hubs connect all your devices in one place for easy access via an app or voice command system.


Are the garage doors open or closed?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity to enable these objects to exchange data over the internet. Imagine the possibility of getting home from work and opening your garage door. You wonder if your spouse forgot to close it before going out. Or maybe some neighbour kid snuck in on their skateboard again? After checking your smartphone, you discover it was closed at 3:15 pm when they left for work, but now it's open at 5:30 pm when they should have returned home from their job.

Let's say it's raining outside, and you want to know if your garage door has been left open by accident. With a smartwatch or wristband that monitors temperature changes, moisture levels, and other environmental information, along with real-time location tracking provided by GPS or WiFi-connected devices such as smartphones; you'll be able to get instant updates on whether or not something needs attention (or maybe just an umbrella).

Imagine being able to check all these statuses from anywhere just by touching your smartphone screen.

  • The heat is on in the kitchen, and you are walking down the street with your kids to get home. It's wintertime, and it's cold outside. You want to ensure that the house is warm when you arrive there, so there won't be any need to heat it again before going to bed.
  • You have lost your keys somewhere between work and home, and there is a meeting at 9:00 am at your office tomorrow morning, but the door of your rented apartment has been locked since 8:00 pm. How would you manage this situation? Is there any way out?
  • Your child wants ice cream as soon as he returns from school every day; however, his mother always says no because she thinks it's unhealthy for him! How would she explain why he cannot have ice cream?

The IoT is an exciting technology that will change our lives in the coming years. We can already see how it's impacting our homes and businesses, but as more devices connect to the internet, we'll see how far this trend reaches into every corner of life. There are endless possibilities for what this technology could do in the future. As people become more comfortable using smart devices in their daily lives, we can expect innovations that will make interactions easier!
