Plumbing and The Internet of Things

Your Plumbing and The Internet of Things

Wikipedia defines The Internet of Things as “the network of physical objects—devices, vehicles, buildings and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity that enables these objects to collect and exchange data.” In other words, your state-of-the-art devices and appliances can share the information that their embedded sensors accumulate. In the example above, your fridge’s sensors, which are connected to your home wireless network, will recognize that the milk shelf is nearly depleted and share that information with you via your mobile phone or e-mail service.
