IoT for Home. Be Smart, Live Smart

Kovid Academy
08/12/2016 0 0

Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the booming topics these days among the software techies and the netizens, and is considered as the next big thing after Mobility, Cloud and Big Data.
Are you really aware of what actually Internet of Things is all about, and how it can transform your normal boring house into a smart home? If not, then you are at the right place. In this article, we are going to explain how the Internet of Things is going to digitalise our lives in the coming days.

What is IoT?

Internet of Things is a simple network of interconnected things that are linked with the sensors and internet-enabled devices, which allows them to gather and share the data responsively.  

This means IoT extends the internet connectivity beyond the regular devices like Computers, Smartphones and Tablets to a wide spectrum of electronic components and daily things, which will use the embedded technology via Internet, for interacting and communication with the external environment.

What IoT do?

Internet of Things makes it easier to manage our daily life aspects, without getting tensed or worried about anything. The power of inter-connectivity minimizes the chances for glitches and makes the smart devices to work for us. Just imagine how cool it would be, the moment when you wake up in the morning and the smart coffee machine prepares a bed coffee for you. It will definitely be going to make your day awesome.

Is IoT the future?

IoT is existing; there are already several IoT applications that are available in the market, which most of the people are already using them in their daily lives. In the coming days, the number will gradually increase as more people are likely to buy IoT products.

According to Gartner, 4.9 billion things were inter-connected in 2015, and the number is expected to reach 20.8 billion by 2020.

Switch to Smart Home with IoT:-
With IoT, you can transform your simple houses into the smart homes, where you can get the feasibility to control everything by using your Smartphone or a Tablet.

“A house is a machine for living in”

–  Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier around 80 years ago has referred a house as a machine designed for humans to stay and carry out their daily life aspects. From then on-wards, a number of attempts have been made by different techno-brains to transform this vision into reality. With the emergence of IoT, this vision of Le Corbusier finally seems to be fulfilling on a rapid pace.We are now already talking to our Smartphones (via personal assistants like Siri, Cortana etc), and in the coming days we will be doing the same with all the other internet-enabled devices that are present inside our smart homes. Smart homes with inter-connected devices are loaded with wide possibilities that makes our lives easier and more comfortable.

Let us imagine that you are returning back to the home from office, and you are in the need of an instant shower. Rather than turning the geyser on when you reach home and wait for the water to get heated up, you can simply use your smartphone while leaving the office, and tell the smart thermostat to heat the water up to a specified temperature.
No shortage of possibilities exists with IoT and analytics, because in future, ‘anything that can be connected will be connected’.

1.    Operate Remotely
With IoT, you can now have everything hooked up with the Internet, which allows you to operate any appliance from any part of the world – whether you want to turn on the bedroom AC or just need to switch off the bathroom light, anything and everything can be done on your fingertips.

2.      Intensified Home Security
Different devices are making the security aspects smarter for the people to always keep an eye on their homes. Whenever the security cameras detect any unexpected motion inside or outside your home, it will give you an instant alert message.

3.    Re-design Every Occasion
What will be more fabulous than the home lightening that changes with your personal tastes and occasions. With the inter-connectivity of bulbs and lights, you can switch between the various florescent colors, and can also adjust the brightness levels depending upon your current moods.

4.    Personalized Health
We are already using some smart wearable like health bands and wrist bands that monitors our heartbeat, pulse rate, blood pressure, sugar levels etc.  With IoT, your smart refrigerator now holds the ability to self-order for milk, vegetables and other food items when you start running low.


There is no doubt to say that, Internet of Things is the next great thing for us, and our lives are going to be greatly improved with it. Not only for house automation, IoT holds charge on the energy sectors, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation sectors and a lot more. However, the point that is to be noticed is the ‘smarter’ the devices inside our homes become, the higher the scope for misusing them will also prevail. Because, always being connected with the things around us will narrow the possibility of privacy and secrecy. Moreover, the chances for scams, frauds and cyber-attacks will also escalate, and also just think about what the advertisers are going to do.

In order to lay smart restrictions on these pitfalls, the big giants like Amazon, AT&T, Belkin, Bosch, GE, Cisco etc. have already started hunting for the talented and skillful IoT developers, who can smartly connect them. In order to meet these market requirements, Kovid Academy is offering the IoT online training and classroom training for the aspirants who holds an aggressive passion towards internet working technology. Come and learn ‘Internet of Things’ from Kovid, and start connecting your smartphone with the electronic devices around you.
