My Thoughts on IoT – The Internet of Things

My Thoughts on IoT – The Internet of Things

My Thoughts on IoT – The Internet of Things

I have been seeing all kinds of information on IoT lately and a lot of new products on the market.  IoT is where all your appliances, gadgets, vehicles, etc. are all connected by the internet.  This is very useful in some ways, as you can control everything from an app or self-service reporting.  I can see that this is the future and can be very helpful in many ways.

The concept of the Internet of Things brings to mind a complex range of feelings for me, on the one hand, I see the promise in the concept and its application, its potential to enrich my life with the ability to connect with others and the devices that make up the modern world.  On the other hand, I can see the potential for harm and intrusion in my private life.  The real question is whether or not the acknowledged benefits outweigh the potential for mischief, do you embrace the modern world and all it has to offer, the ability to empower the individual and the enjoyment of the connectivity such concepts offer, or do you submit to fears of losing control and being vulnerable to the unscrupulous?

For me the choice is clear, we embrace the positives, which is the future, something that advances whether or not we are prepared for it.  What vulnerabilities that exist with the concept will follow the evolution of all such technical advances, developers will devise methods to minimize vulnerabilities and subsequent challenges will go through the process all innovating ideas face, the race to stay one step ahead.

My personal thoughts are that I am not quite ready for it yet.  I can see where some of it would be useful if you were not at home and wanted to see what was going on while you were away and to control lights, etc.  You have to buy specific internet ready devices that will all connect together and maybe get a professional or ad-hoc reporting to install it all.

As more items are connected to the internet, more people will get them and eventually everything will be connected.  This can be good for efficiency and convenience but also bad because if one thing breaks down then it can affect all the other items that are connected.  The security aspect is also a concern.

IoT is the way of the future and is growing rapidly.  I will be entering it very cautiously and slowly.
