IoT Basics

With the help of sensors, devices, the cloud, and your code, everyday objects or "things" can take on new abilities. Plants can let you know they need water, garage doors can be closed remotely, or drones can avoid flying into trees. The Internet of Things (IoT) is how all these objects connect together to create a smart world.
