The idea of connecting any device (so long as it has an on/off switch) to the Internet and other connected devices is known as the “Internet of Things”. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vast network of interconnected devices and people, all gathering and sharing information about their environments and how they are used.
That includes a staggering number of items in all different sizes and shapes. IoT technology has a wide range of applications, from home security, thermostats, and lighting fixtures to commercial applications such as manufacturing and defense.
From a wearable smartwatch with a temperature sensor to provide insights into your menstrual cycle and alert you to any irregularities such as spotting or missed periods, to an intelligent microwave that automatically cooks your food for the appropriate amount of time, to a self-driving car with complex sensors that detect objects in its path.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Any devices with built-in sensors are connected to an ‘Internet of Things platform, which merges data from various devices and employs analytics to share the essential information with applications created to meet particular needs.
These comprehensive IoT platforms can identify helpful information and can be safely ignored. This data can identify trends, propose recommendations, and detect potential issues before they arise.
For example, many companies use biometric systems to track daily attendance, allow access to authorized personnel only, and perform other related functions. Advanced security, data communication, and minimal human intervention are some features of IoT in this sector. Biometric technology uses fingerprint, voice, eye, and face recognition.
IoT-based security systems are more reliable than manual or automated approaches. The hardware used in biometric security systems is interconnected and can discard data after every usage to the host computer. The valuable information from this scanned data is retrieved as needed and is then stored for later use, which helps save time and effort.
