How IoT Can Make Your Life Easier

Some of you can probably read the title of this post and are probably wondering, "What is an IoT?"

IoT stands for "Internet of things" and refers to the network of devices (home appliances, vehicles, etc.) that are embedded with a network connectivity which gives them the ability to connect and exchange information. "Things" can also refer to other devices, such as live streaming cameras and heart monitoring implants.  These types of devices uses ad-hoc reporting and self-reporting in their software application. Many scholars suggests 'things' as an "inextricable mixture of hardware, software, data and service."

How is this beneficial for you?

Well, for starters, IoT will reduce day to day to human intervention, which will save you time, energy and money.

Here are three ways IoT Can Make Your Life Easier:

Smart Robot Vacuums

Not everyone has time to drag out the vacuum cleaner and clean your floors after a long, hard day at work. This is when owing a smart robot vacuum can come in handy. A robot vacuum can be programmed to clean your floors even when you're not even at home.

How does it work?

Robot vacuums have multiple sensors which helps it scan the environment around it. The vacuum will send the environmental data to its microprocessor. You can control a smart robot vacuum through an app that can you download onto your smartphone or tablet. Additionally, you can run a diagnostics to check the status of vacuum's cleaning tools.

Smart Refrigerator

A smart refrigerator (or otherwise known has a hub refrigerator) can be a bit expensive ($6,000 or more), but owning one can help you save money and time. These type of refrigerators have built-in cameras inside that capture images every time the door shuts, so by using an app on your smartphone or tablet you can view the inside of your refrigerator anytime and anywhere you are at. This way you can check to see if your out of something, like eggs, when you are not at home.

Smart Thermostats

Yes, you can even buy a smart thermostat for your home. What makes a smart thermostat different than the old-fashioned kinds, is that the device will learn your habits and will automatically adjust the temperature settings throughout the day. You can control the thermostat with your smartphone, as well as checking how much energy your home has used.

What kind of smart appliances or devices do you use on a regular basis? Please leave your answer in the comment section. I would love to hear what you have to say on the subject.
