The IoT is a Service Application
The relevant IoT discussion is not so much about sensors or communication standards, it is about data collection, analytics and self-learning systems that can quantify life. Real IoT applications for the consumer are “things like” lifestyle coaches, home butlers, caretakers, etc. In other words, applications that produce value in our daily lives by providing more security, more comfort, less energy usage, and lower costs while bringing peace of mind. The goal of IoT is to help us all make better, more timely and informed decisions. This is how the IoT becomes a new source for wealth creation in our complex society and in our exciting lives.
