The IoT is very much a real thing that already exists today. The concept was introduced some time ago and since then hundreds of new categories of items have been added to the expanding network. You may already have some items in your home connected to the IoT even if you don't know it.
Let's look at some current examples of IoT connectivity. There are home security systems, vending machines, thermostats, vehicles, appliances, alarms, and lights. Many of these things are now designed with internet connectivity in mind, but they weren't only a decade or so ago.
Vehicles are beginning to rely on the IoT to help communicate with one another. This is intended to keep the vehicles and drivers safe while on the road. Lights and appliances connected to the IoT can be controlled from anywhere in the world if you have the proper credentials.
The Internet of Things(IoT) is a collective movement to help establish a growing network of everyday items. To do this, items must be given some way of connecting to the web, an IP address, and some sort of information to transmit. For example, if your refrigerator is connected to the web, then you want to be able to know the contents from anywhere in the world. This usually requires the use of additional sensors.
