Ever heard about IoT if not then this app is for you. Read this blog till the end and you will get to know about its impact on human life and mobile app development.
Be it your kitchen, pool, lawn, garden, rooftop, vehicles, or business, you will find the wonders of IoT in all sectors. It has made human life so easy and simple that no human can think a life without this technology.
Let’s start with its brief explanation;
What is IoT?
The Internet of Things called IoT, is a series of network that connect and automates devices. The role of IoT is to connect physical devices with digital gadgets and interfaces.
Take an example of the air conditioner that can be operated through an app on your phone. Wondering how is that possible, well this is what the Internet of Things stands for. All the devices and smart objects are run through an app.
Moreover, to simplify, IoT is for people who have smart homes, yes just like smartphones and devices, there is a smart home too. In this smart home, everything is controlled by an app.
What Is The Use Of IoT In Daily Life
IoT has been used for multiple purposes,
- Smart Shopping
- Smart Retail
- Smart City
- Smart Home
- Smart Banking
- Smart Agriculture
All of these areas involve the Internet of Things, as per experts there will be more than 60 billion IoT devices in the upcoming two years.
Let’s See What Can Be Done With An IoT App
A lot can be done with just an app, many app development companies are developing apps with IoT integration. Also, if the apps do not have built-in IoT, then simply contact the app development companies and ask them how to develop an app like Zillow with an AWS IOT to handle business processes.
Let’s jump to the applications and their uses;
Security- Smart Home
This is quite common now and almost everybody has it in their home. We are not talking about the usual homes, but enormous and luxurious homes. There are smart camera devices with face and voice recognition.
Only the voices and faces that are fed into the system can enter the home. These smart cameras can be monitored on the apps and the owner of the house can see who is entering or wandering around the house.
By logging in to the cloud computer, the owner will be alerted through the app if some stranger is found wandering nearby.
Heating And Cooling-Smart Home
Since we are talking about smart homes, some thermostats maintain the temperature of the house. This adjustment can be done through an app, as simple as that.
The thermostat and the whole system are connected to Wi-Fi, so the users can connect with the devices through an app.
Did you forget to switch off the chimney or the stove? No worries when there is technology, all you do is connect to the cloud that operates your smart home.
By simply logging in you can switch on, switch off, control the adjustments, and much more. What a time to live where devices are not run by humans but a mere application.
Smart Toll Collection-Smart Business
Gone are the days when people used to wait in lines for toll deductions. Now, some apps can collect toll charges when a vehicle passes by. There are sensors in the windshield that are connected to the cloud, all the transporter IDs are saved in it.
This ETC system has allowed people to travel without any fear of getting late on tolls and tunnels. No more cash is needed when the charges are simply deducted by the app.
Wearable Devices-Smart Life
Who doesn’t know about wearable devices, this wearable technology has been used not just for looking cool but to have an easy life.
Wearable devices are playing a huge role when it comes to IoT, from fitness checks, health monitoring, day-to-day task reminders, and much more, there is an app for all.
The implementation of IoT has helped the healthcare sector a lot, it has saved many lives just because the apps were able to send an alert as soon as the situation occurred.
Healthcare- Smart Health
Continuing the wonders of IoT in the healthcare sector, life has been much simpler and easier. Just wearing a band that is a product of IoT, can save you from dying, which means if you are a heart patient, your heartbeats will be monitored continuously, and as soon they are below or above the safe line, there goes an alert.
To sum up, this was all about how technology is doing wonders and helping not just businesses but human life to a great extent.
