Wouldn’t it be convenient to tell your air-conditioning system to activate at a certain temperature before you head home from work? Or have your front door automatically unlock when you need it to open? The above scenarios are some examples of the Internet of Things (IoT) at work.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system that connects any electronic device, gadget, machine, microchip, sensor, appliance, building — anything — to the Internet. As a result, all these things can collect information and then share it with each other. Such interconnection of devices and machines allows people to monitor, control, and improve the overall environment.
