Examples of consumer applications include connected car, entertainment, home automation (also known as smart home devices), wearable technology, quantified self, connected health, and appliances such as washer/dryers, robotic vacuums, air purifiers, ovens, or refrigerators/freezers that use Wi-Fi for remote monitoring.Io T devices are a part of the larger concept of home automation, also known as domotics.Between 19 several companies proposed solutions like Microsoft's at Work or Novell's NEST.
Ease of usability is the most immediate benefit to connecting these functionalities.
Long term benefits can include the ability to create a more environmentally friendly home by automating some functions such as ensuring lights and electronics are turned off.
Large smart home systems utilize a main hub or controller to provide users with a central control for all of their devices.
These devices can include lighting, heating and air conditioning, media and security systems.
For example, such technology could grant motion-picture publishers much more control over end-user private devices by remotely enforcing copyright restrictions and digital rights management, so the ability of a customer who bought a Blu-ray disc to watch the movie could become dependent on the copyright holder's decision, similar to Circuit City's failed DIVX.
A significant transformation is to extend "things" from the data generated from devices to objects in the physical space.The Internet of things (Io T) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data.Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the existing Internet infrastructure.The applications for internet connected devices are extensive.Multiple categorizations have been suggested, most of which agree on a separation between consumer, enterprise (business), and infrastructure applications.Another example would be to use smart devices as for examples Amazon's Alexa to get the most recent and most important news of the day while cutting the vegetables for the meal you are cooking at the moment.
