How IoT Is Blossoming In The Garden
The internet of things can seriously up your green thumb game
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a growing market and will have an ever-increasing presence in our everyday lives in the years to come. A Wall Street Journal article last year estimated that the IoT market could reach $1.7 trillion by 2020. IoT technology has moved beyond our indoor space and into our gardens recently with a number of products and services that are bringing connivence and peace of mind for the green thumbed population.
Some examples of IoT services focused on your outdoor living space include the Presence App which was created by a company called People Power. The app turns unused phone and tablets into a video surveillance system that monitors your home. With easy to install smart sensors the app give you the ability to monitor entry, motion, water, temperature, and humidity changes in your home and backyard without a monthly fee.
