What is IoT?
Internet of Things or IoT can be said to be a giant network of connected things and people. They are provided with unique identifiers and process without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. The IoT includes numerous interesting objects of different shapes and sizes like the smart microwaves that cook your food for the right length of time on its own or even the automatic- driverless cars that drive on its own with the help of sensors inside. This allows the cars to detect obstacles in its path.
IoT Trend Making Its Way to India
There is a lot of IoT solution provider company in India. These companies are working relentlessly to bring in the latest IoT in the markets of India. The demand has caused a lot of hype. Let us see what all applications are in trend.

The coming of IoT into existence has reduced human labor and helped reduce the issues easily. Cities like Ahmedabad, Pune, Mumbai, New Delhi and many more will be listed under smart cities by 2021.
The word ‘smart’ added here means the home using devices connected to IoT. This automates and monitors in-house systems with some kind of user interaction. Some known IoT solution provider companies provide home appliances that come under the smart home technology are door locks, smoke detectors, home security, and monitoring systems, etc. For instance, the latest smart refrigerators can connect to the internet through Wi-Fi and provide additional features.
