Smart and IoT Devices

Everyday objects made intelligent with the addition of computing power and made connected to the Internet, to form the Internet of Things (IoT) are what we call ‘Smart Devices’. Smart devices gather and share data from the edge of the network, and while they may be small or may come in many sizes, they can be powerful tools in the current edge of Industry 4.0.

They range from small asset tracking devices to wearables that monitor health, wearables that help visualization of remote facilities or intricate sub-components, to connected refrigerators and other smart home components. They range from industrial usage to home appliances. Smart devices use sensors to gather physical data, such as light, temperature, and presence, and deliver that data to be analyzed and used to provide valuable insights to users.
