The Internet of Things: What Is It and Why Should You Care?

What is the Internet of Things?

When we ponder all the things that might affect your life, what is it that we think about? 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, A variety of industries are now exploring how IoT can be used to optimise their businesses. Some examples include Water and Water Purification. The IoT has great potential in water and water purification systems. Operating cost savings are expected to be higher than the cost of investment, with most estimates putting this figure between 10% and 30%. There are new water treatment products, which can make a profit by reducing the cost of water treatment with self-service treatment zones, reducing the operating cost of existing water treatment plants while protecting water quality with UV disinfection. They are providing a smart, easy-to-use, flexible and cost-effective water treatment solution.

How Does It Work?

IoT system creates an ideal monitoring environment, which means it can run with minimal human interaction. This allows for the full and consistent monitoring of equipment, parameters, and settings. Systems can easily synchronise with a range of other automation or monitoring systems for total integration and control. To use our IoT solutions, you will have to connect to our cloud-based cloud-computing system using a username and password that can be changed on a client-by-client basis. There are several different modules that come with IoT solutions.

Some examples of IoT.

FishGPS: is a high-speed internet-connected GPS tag that tracks the location and health of fish. It works to optimise fish for sales and gain valuable insights into fish stock. With FishGPS, you can manage your entire fish industry on a single platform. Planter: This sensor’s objective is to provide real-time monitoring of plant growth for better yield. The device is designed to receive signals from your plant and relay the data to a Cloud Platform. Urban Stream: This water monitoring system is an example of using wireless sensors to take environmental measurements of urban water systems. The Urban Stream project combines a smart irrigation system and solar power to deliver a device that is not only simple to install but also accurate and affordable.

How does IoT work and why a business needs to use IoT

When we mention Internet of Things, we usually mean that, in the future, all of the physical items around us will be connected to the internet. From cars and computers to dishwashers and refrigerators, everything will be connected using one of the three major IoT network connections: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular. This means you’ll be able to control and track these objects from your phone, and even receive alerts if something goes wrong with your dishwasher or refrigerator, for example. This future is already happening, which means businesses need to start thinking about how IoT can help them. Or in the aquaculture industry even mussel farm monitoring!

Conclusion

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.
