When you hear “Internet of Things” (IOT), what do you think of?
- Cell phones
- Hard drives
- Smart watches
- Bluetooth devices
- Cars with navigation/Bluetooth
Really anything that we use to communicate with others and that has always been seen as technology per se. But what you probably don’t think of are the commonly used items that have progressed over time into smart technology such as refrigerators, lights, cameras, front doors, etc. All of these things and then some can now track the contents inside, what’s happening in real-time and more.
In 2016, the average consumer owned 3.64 connected devices (Global Web Index).
Gartner estimated in 2014 that a typical family home could own more than 500 smart devices by 2022!
