What is meant by IoT?
The Internet of Matters (IoT), (internet-connected) is a system of interrelated computing Apparatus, mechanical and Electronic machines provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and Also the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. (Source: Wikipedia)
As we all are aware that IoT is changing technology all over the world across industries, homes, and transportation. It has its impact on nearly everywhere, such as agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, transport, Military, and much more. But Heat is meant by IoT? What does it mean?
Technically speaking, the real definition found on other websites is
“The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals, or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.” Too many Technical words. No? In this article, we are going to tell you about IOT in non-technical words.
What is the full form of IoT? Internet of Things
What is IOT – IOT in Simple Words
Long story short, anything or everything you are using, which is connected to the Internet via mobile, wifi, broadband, is IoT. We all know how important the Internet has become now. From cellular phones to smartphones, we have jumped into a new era of the Internet. The Internet is a beautiful thing that provides access to trillions of data of knowledge and information. It uses words, audios, videos, activities, applications, sites, to grant us the wisdom and entertainment we desire. You can call to talk to someone, read an e-book, watch any movie, order a pizza, or a new device, you can even transfer money. This is all with the help of the Internet and a device like a smartphone.
It is to use the power given by the Internet in other devices also inspite of computers and smartphones. It includes every other device with an ability to connect to the Internet. Those devices which are connected together are used to gather information and send the information or both.

Importance of IOT
When we connect any device to the Internet, that device can send and receive information from the web. This service of sending and receiving data as the information is used in the basics of a Smartphone. For example, you can watch any video on the Internet, mainly YouTube, but that doesn’t mean that you have that video in your smartphone/device. This is because that video is saved on the server in the world somewhere else, and you can access that video by sending and receiving information. Here sending will be requesting that video and receiving will be streaming of that video online.
Thus, for being a smart device, you don’t need high storage or computer with the massive processor but to be able to connect to another device with the high storage and data.
We can specify all the things that can be connected to the Internet into three simple categories:
- Devices that are able to collect and send information.
- Devices which can receive the information and perform the required action.
- Devices that can do both of the above tasks.
Advantage of IOT
Internet of Things can provide insights into and control the business and the people. This includes over 99 percent of the objects and devices which can be connected to the Internet. Thus, IoT connects the business and people to the world around them to perform a specific job with great meaning and importance to the user within a small period of time.
- Collecting, Sending of Information
It includes sensors such as temperature, motion, air quality, touch. Thus collecting information from the environment
- Receiving, Action on Information
These include printers, microwave, TV, and much more, which receives information and act accordingly.
- Doing Both
For example Air conditioner, which senses the room temperature and automatically adjusts the cooling to take.
