Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT technology is most synonymous with products associated to the concept of the “smart home” or “smart cities”, covering devices and appliances that support one or more common ecosystems, and can be controlled via devices associated with that ecosystem, such as smartphones.
