What is the Internet of Things?
When you think of all the things that might affect your day, what is it that you think of? How about “how am I going to automate my work”? Well the Adroit IoT company works in the field of IoT, but what is it? The Internet of Things (IoT) is the movement of physical devices to communicate wirelessly and store information online. Think of it as the next step in a network that connects humans and other physical devices to digital information via the internet. The devices connect and to the internet to exchange information. Examples of IoT devices are everything from your doorbell to your thermostat, your cars to your appliances and even your fridge. IoT devices allow different types of data to be shared between these physical devices. Data such as weather, location, sensor data and time are all stored on the cloud. The possibilities are endless and the range of possibilities are so varied, there is no way we can get them all into this post, but you will get the idea.
Who Uses It?
IoT is used by the following industries; Agriculture, Aquaculture like real-time water monitoring
, Construction, IoT’s wide range of clients ranges from small to medium-sized businesses through to large multi-national organisations with over 100 major projects having been implemented around the world, utilising our wireless IoT monitoring and control systems. Smaller organisations within the high-tech, manufacturing and automotive sectors use IoT solutions to monitor environmental parameters such as pH and turbidity, provide accurate real-time readings and advanced management systems. IoT solutions provide invaluable information in understanding and planning maintenance or improvement programs to extend their asset lifespan. These solutions are ideally suited to remote locations and remote locations outside of the city.
How Does It Work?
“What is an IoT technology, and what does it do?” An Internet of Things (IoT) technology is the adoption of connected devices for gathering and processing real-time data and providing information to enable the automation of various processes within an organisation. IoT is a worldwide digital technology movement that creates a new communications protocol and an ecosystem for connecting a digital network of physical objects. A wireless monitoring and control system is connected to IOT technology via the Cloud Core System.
Some examples of IoT.
Big Data analytics: For example, businesses can track the behaviour of customers using analytics, gaining insights into trends, habits and changing behaviours. You can use this information to send relevant, targeted adverts and respond to changing customer needs. Agriculture: Monitoring weeds with precision agriculture and weather data: Currently, only 2-3% of farmers have proper software in place. A current project is working with a New Zealand company to develop software that will be able to automate weed control. By analysing soil, weather and greenhouse data from all devices on farm plans to help reduce manual weed control processes by 80%.
How does IoT work and why a business needs to use IoT
Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the hottest new trends in technology, and with good reason. IoT allows people to connect everyday objects, data, and other devices to the internet to improve efficiency, safety, and technology. Imagine being able to control an entire home or building from your smartphone, or being able to access information about a machine or product with the simple tap of a button. These are things that are only possible with IoT, and they’re only the beginning. Or in the aquaculture industry even mussel farm monitoring!
When looking to implement an IoT project into your business, There are a few company\ies to turn to. They can offer complete IoT solutions with a strong focus on security and business-ready IoT monitoring.
