What is the Internet of Things (IoT) and how does it build a connected ecosystem?


Nowadays, we hear a lot about the connected ecosystem. We read about everything connected – from connected homes to connected offices, connected cars and even connected manufacturing facilities. These are activated by an interconnection through the Internet of Things, or IOT. But what is IoT? Let’s understand.

Simply put, the Internet of Things is a network of devices connected to the Internet linked together to work in tandem. It enables a connected ecosystem and automation.

For example, a smart light bulb and a smart speaker connected to each other are connected to the Internet. Here, the smart speaker can take voice commands to turn the smart bulb on or off. In silos, the smart bulb and smart speaker are just other internet-connected devices with limited interconnection benefits. But when linked together, they form a network where the two devices form a connected ecosystem.

By combining data from these connected devices with automated systems, it is possible to collect information to create an action. Therefore, the Internet of Things not only allows you to control one device from another, but also enables automation. There are several advantages to deploying the Internet of Things, and the connected ecosystem is just one of them.

Basically, the Internet of Things was designed to make the most of devices connected to the Internet to make human life easier. It integrates data from connected devices. When devices connected to the Internet are linked together, they form a network. This network integrates data from various connected devices and applies analyzes. Therefore, you can interact with one device through another even when you are miles away. For example, you can turn your room air conditioner on or off from your office via your smartphone, just using voice control. Moreover, you can automate this task if you have a fixed schedule at home and in the office.
