Welcome to the Connected World.
By 2020 it is predicted there will be more connected ‘things’ in the world than mobile phones. That will be in excess of 16 billion devices. So what are these ‘things’? These are objects or devices connecting over the internet, letting them talk to each other, talk to their owners or talk to applications.
Depending on the object or device they can capture data such as temperature, movement or speed. This can be transmitted through wireless or through a SIM card fitted in the device. In reply, messages can be sent back to the ‘things’ to change the way it is working for example cooling a server down.
Where its most popular currently is in the house, with home heating and energy use such as Hive and Nest and with smart meters.
