In the recent past, before the internet became the most surprising invention on earth, life was a bit hard since human beings did things manually, like record keeping, use manual industrial machines till when, well, the internet came and innovations of the fastest internet speeds came around. This transformed life since now, there is smart connectivity between smart gadgets and a lot of industrial machines are now automated. Surprisingly, there is minimal manual data collection since smart gadgets are now connected with clouds computing storing vast related data which in near future can be used to make crucial decisions.
The goal of the Internet of things is not only smart connectivity but enabling communication between the connected devices. For instance, what happens when a motion sensor detects a walking dog? How will the person inside the house know what has been detected? Well, you guessed it right, having a surveillance system nearby the motion would show the dog walking past the motion detector.
Now think of the Internet of things in collaboration with electrical engineering. This would be electrical technology on another level and thanks to the current internet, electronic gadgets are more powerful than before. Even electricians have gone ahead and they are now properly trained in matters of the internet of things.
There is the major application of the internet of things in an electrical field right from industrial application to home application. They include:
- Smart lighting by adapting ambient conditions-based switching
- Web application and mobile apps enabled wireless and internet-connected lights
- Smart appliances management and control
- Intrusion detection systems, alarm systems and surveillance systems
- Safety systems such as smoke and gas detection
- Home entertainment management such as video, audio and projectors.
- Automation and control systems
- Real-time monitoring control processes
- Deployment of smart machines, smart sensors, and smart controllers with proprietary communication and internet technologies
