How the Internet of Things Will Change Your Life

It has been predicted that by 2020, there will be around
30 billion ‘smart’ devices worldwide, forming a fully-connected network of
life-improving hardware. The Internet of Things (IoT) will impact everyday
lives more than any other technology so far, and it will drastically change
lives in so many ways.

It has been predicted that by 2020, there will be around 30 billion ‘smart’ devices worldwide, forming a fully-connected network of life-improving hardware. The Internet of Things (IoT) will impact everyday lives more than any other technology so far, and it will drastically change lives in so many ways.

Imagine everyday ‘dumb items’ coming to life to make your life that bit better. Heating systems that turn on when you are on your way home, refrigerators that tell you when your milk is running out, or kettles that boil just as you walk through the front door.

The IoT is going to revolutionise life in the home. And it’s been a long time coming. Here’s a fantastic infographic that explains the size of the Internet of Things, showing the sheer scope and growth from the 1990s to modern day.

So what are the ways that the Internet of Things will change your life in the next few years to come? Here are some of the ways that you might benefit from smart technology:

1. Everyday Convenience

There will be nothing you can’t do with a click of a button and nothing that can’t be measured or monitored for your own personal
convenience. Smart homes are the next big thing, and more and more homeowners are choosing smart technology for their heating systems, appliances, and everyday electrical items.

2. Improved Safety

One of the biggest benefits of the Internet of Things is better security. For everyone. Everywhere. Home lighting can be triggered whilst you are away on holiday via the internet, alarms can be controlled remotely, and security cameras can be switched on at any time.

But this feature doesn’t just stop in the home. Traffic lights can adjust to the flow of traffic, making roads safer for drivers. So smart tech can really help to make the world a better place for all.

3. Complete Connectivity

Simply put, the IoT will bring your home to life. Everything will be connected and everything from controlling your heating to doing your grocery shopping will be easier.

4. Money Saving

With better connectivity and convenience, homeowners have the chance to really save money on their utility bills. Being able to monitor of every working appliance in the home will give you full control of where your money is going.

5. Better for the Environment

With full control of appliances, it’s easier for us all to do our bit for the environment. Reduce our carbon footprint, cut back on energy usage, and make our households greener.

6. Improved Healthcare

Not only can the IoT make businesses more efficient, but healthcare services will be able to cut costs and provide a better quality of care for patients. Experts predict that smart technology will improve disease management, reduce errors, enhance the patient experience and create better drug management.

7. New Career Opportunities

With the growth of smart tech, there will be an increasing demand for engineers, programmers, and designers in this field. Which is fantastic for job creation.

    Exciting times we live in! I’m looking forward to the day when I can have a smart car to drive me home and smart clothes that never need washing. That would be cool!
