What is the Internet of Things?
The Internet of Things, or IoT for short, represents all devices, scanners, sensors, and machines that are connected to the internet. Each of these can exchange data via network connectivity, allowing information about a device’s surroundings to be communicated in up to real-time. This technology has become increasingly popular in the consumer world, with items like refrigerators, watches, thermostats, and more being connected to the internet to exchange information.
