Have you ever watch the movie back to the future? If not then may be im too old already to make you recall that movie, but anyway.
The movie shows how future home and office look likes, automated doors and windows voice recognition technology, video calling and so on, and during that time i was thinking i hope someday i could have a interactive home like that.
But you know that movie is 34 years ago when it was first release and the technology they using in that movie is currently happening today.
This is how home and office landscape has change dramatically for the past years, thanks to IoT technology.
For others who wonders what is IoT well, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of physical things embedded with sensors, software, electronics and connectivity to allow it to perform better by exchanging information with other connected devices, the operator or the manufacturer.
In simple terms, it is a network in which physical objects can exchange data internally or with other connected machines.
IoT is a vision that is being built today with an expectation of massive expansion by 2020 as connections move past computers to power billions of other devices, such as home, office switch, bulb, thermostats and parking meters etc.
Now how can we apply this technology to our home or office?
With the vast technologies we have in the market manufacturers and developers develop apps that can easily install on mobile devices which we can use to control devices like switch, relays, plug, bulb, locks and many more with the convenience of a touch of a button on our phones or a voice recognition using Alexa or or google home, cool right!
To visualize how this automation works check out video below.
There's a lot of possible electronics appliances we can integrate using this sonoff device its a matter how geek you are to explore other possibilities.
