You’ve likely heard the buzz about the Internet of Things (IoT), but are you aware of different functions, designed to benefit your family? You don’t have to be a techie to grasp the basics, which according to Forbes is “connecting any device with an on/off switch to the Internet”.
The IoT connects certain devices to the Internet, allowing them to “talk” amongst themselves without user participation. For example, the smart thermostat talks to your smartphone, then programs itself according to your preferred temperatures. The smart refrigerator notices when you need a particular item and puts it on the grocery list.
How about smart shoes? Through cutting-age technology, a GPS-type device can be placed in the insoles of your kid’s shoes. You’ll know where your kid is at all times.
The smart thermometer notes the temperature reading, date and time, plus your child’s symptoms.
Techs are in the development stage of smart technology that will allow parents to watch their kid’s driving practices. Already obtainable, are smart tools, which set off alarms and document number of occurrences the teenage driver removes his hand from the steering wheel. Tracking systems also exist that follow your teen’s driving patterns, such as sudden starts or stops and/or speeding.
An IoT function that parents love, shuts off your children’s devices. First, it zips notices to your kids that it’s dinnertime. If they don’t voluntarily turn off their electronics, you’ll have the ability to shut off their devices from your phone.
Due to the Internet of Things, the future is now!
