Before we go into details of the above topics, let us first understand what IOT is.

What is IoT?

Internet of Things, simply termed as ‘IoT’ is an advanced technology which the industries are starting to adapt into their operation. IoT is simply an UI that a user can integrate into almost all the electrical/ electronic devices to transform them into a smarter one. This technology is also preferred by many industries for the variety of applications it offers for a user like real-time analytics, analysis of collected data, cloud data storage, trigger an action based on a value an user sets, remote notification etc.

Till now I only read about IOT and its impact in news but now I am seeing a guy sitting right next to me got a great opportunity in this emerging field. And this changed his life and if utilized well, this can change the lives of many common people.
