Top 5: IoT Features Consumers Find Most Useful


The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to everyday objects that are connected to the Internet and can send and receive data. These objects can become “smart” by learning about our preferences and usage. Think of a coffee maker that turns itself on when your alarm goes off every morning and adds coffee to your shopping list when you’re almost out. IoT is still in its early days, but so far, here are the top 5 features consumers find most useful:

  1. Turning off lights from a mobile device
  2. Tracking home security
  3. Adjusting home thermostat
  4. Turning off connected devices or appliances
  5. Receiving money-saving tips and information
