ULTIMATE GUIDE TO IOT (Internet of Things)

Can you imagine your phone without the Internet? This thought might scare you! With the advent and spread of Internet technology, everyone has become accustomed to using the Internet for a range of daily activities

·         Statista records 5 million Internet users worldwide in 2022.

Together with other technological advances on the Internet, the Internet of Things is dominating various industries with its superpowers.

·         According to Globe Newswire, the global market for the Internet of Things was USD 310 billion in 2020. By 2028, it could increase to USD 1842 billion.

But what is the IoT?

The concept of the Internet of Things is to link Internet capabilities with physical devices and everyday things. Hardware devices in this system include sensors, actuators and other devices. All control is done via the Internet.

One of the best-known examples of the IoT is the “smart home.” A smart home can consist of various devices, such as smart lights, security alarms, and smart curtains. In this case, the user can control the switching on and off of the devices, regardless of whether he or she is at home. This is possible because the data is stored in the cloud and can be accessed from anywhere.

Such IoT devices can make life easier. With efficient system automation, you can transfer many important and urgent tasks to these devices and save your time and energy. However, to build powerful yet simple IoT devices, we need to consider important components of IoT.

3 important components of an IoT project

1.) Connectivity: The first and most important component of the IoT is connectivity. All “things” or devices are connected to each other through the Internet. Therefore, it is easier to access the data and perform actions with devices that are connected to the network.

2.) Hardware: The IoT hardware or ‘things’ includes all the connected physical devices. They can transmit/receive data by networking with a server.

 3.)Cloud: Cloud is another essential component of IoT. It is responsible for data storage and processing. In addition, it also enables actions and performance analysis.

How does the IoT work?

For the IoT to work, all three of the above components must be coordinated. Hardware devices such as sensors, microcontrollers, phones, tablets, desktops, etc.

Data is collected from these devices. The collected data is then transferred to the cloud. The developed software analyzes and measures the data and issues appropriate commands.

Let us understand how it works with an example, home security. Many IoT products such as sensors, cameras, alarms, microphones, etc. can be integrated into the home to improve security. These devices can provide 24*7 security regardless of your presence in the house. For example, with the camera on the door, you can use smart devices to watch your guests and talk to them when you are not at home.

Benefits of the IoT

The IoT can provide businesses with efficient automation, data storage, and superior performance at optimal costs and other investments. Below are some additional benefits:

·         Automation and increased productivity

Automation is one of the key benefits of the IoT. The IoT can automate the most important and mundane tasks, massively reducing the amount of work required. As a result, these tasks are performed effectively, but other necessary tasks also receive maximum attention and energy. This, in turn, increases the productivity of the entire business cycle.

·         Efficient operation

Automating many devices and linking multiple tasks enables efficient operation. In addition, the IoT can be used to control various functions automatically. It reduces errors in the system and keeps it running smoothly.

·         Better customer service

The IoT enables complete data analysis. This makes it easy to understand patterns of customer needs. Also, with an IoT-enabled system, it is easier to stay in touch with customers. This automatically helps businesses maintain a good relationship with them,

·         Cost-effective solutions

IoT devices have better monitoring efficiency. It is also more cost-effective to monitor or analyze data via the cloud or specific systems than to examine the entire system. Also, precise and automated control of multiple functions can save both time and money.

·         Use of the IoT in various industries

Aside from everyday functions in smart homes, IoT devices have a fertile application base from healthcare to manufacturing.

The IMARC Group study forecasts that global industrial IoT demand will grow 15.3%in 2026, from $144.3 billion in 2020.

In manufacturing, the IoT can detect process delays. It also helps improve process and performance. In healthcare, heart monitoring and cancer treatment monitoring are some examples of IoT.
