About IoT Devices IoT devices are instruments that can be connected to the internet to offer remote controlled connectivity. These devices sense and analyze their surroundings to offer inputs about the designated area. IoT is a network of physical objects interconnected through various network technologies. The devices in this network can communicate among themselves and with the external environment when required. Kevin Ashton, a British entrepreneur, coined the term IoT in 1999, while dealing with networked radio-frequency identification (RFID) and emerging sensing technologies. This technology can connect devices, systems, and services in an advanced manner that goes beyond machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. The interconnection of the devices including smart objects will propel automation in nearly all fields, leading to further technological advances such as smart grids, smart meters, and smart cities.
