The Internet of things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
An IoT system consists of sensors/devices which “talk” to the cloud through some kind of connectivity. Once the data gets to the cloud, software processes it and then might decide to perform an action, such as sending an alert or automatically adjusting the sensors/devices without the need for the user.
Consumer connected devices include smart TVs, smart speakers, toys, wearables and smart appliances. Smart meters, commercial security systems and smart city technologies -- such as those used to monitor traffic and weather conditions -- are examples of industrial and enterprise IoT devices.
The Basic Elements of IoT
- Connected devices. Devices are the primary physical objects connected to the system.
- Central Control Hardware. A Control Panel manages the two-way data traffic between different networks and protocols.
- Data Cloud.
- User interface.
- Network Interconnection.
The main benefits that a company with an IoT system can have are: Productivity improvement: IoT allows the monitoring, monitoring and control of the different processes, which optimizes the different operations that increase productivity and efficiency.
