How Internet of Things is changing the way we live

27 September 2017

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way we live and work. It is set to make our lives easier, more convenient and more comfortable. Before we get into how IoT is set to change our way of life, let’s explain what IoT is.

Put simply, IoT is a network of Internet connected objects able to collect and exchange data. A good example of this would be; imagine that you're ironing clothes, and you ask Siri, the voice assistant on Apple Smart Home Kit devices, to read you the latest sports news stories so that you can focus on ironing those clothes.

Or even enhancing your home security through smart connected home security devices. A lot of these are easy to install and work well with smart-home systems, including Apple’s HomeKit, Samsung’s SmartThings hub, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google Home.

But why do you need IoT?
The biggest advantage of IoT is convenience. IoT provides you with a lot more convenience. It handles mundane things such as lighting, temperature control, locking the doors and so on. For example, you can turn your lights on or off via your phone or a smart speaker and even control the brightness, adjusting the color temperature (a cool blue/white light to a warm yellow), and changing the light to any color in the rainbow.

In addition, IoT devices can help reduce costs and conserve energy. In our example above, with smart lights you will lower your electric bill and reduce energy consumption.

But all these benefits are useless without a fast and reliable internet service. It’s no use buying these smart home IoT devices, if they cannot work because of the internet or lack of thereof.
