IoT, abbreviated as the Internet of Things, which has a huge impact on the society. Especially in the upcoming days, the requirement is going to be very high for the contribution of the IoT technology in various fields. In countries like Germany and Italy, the Internet of Things has already been implemented and is used by many people. IoT has some of the coolest features in its applications, all of the outcomes are used in real life scenarios that too by common people, they are pretty cool to witness its applications and the ease of access it provides to its users. In this article let’s take a quick look at the differences between Consumer and Industry Internet of Things.

Consumer IoT

Consumer IoT is mainly designated for the individual customers, which can be used in homes and offices. This is mainly used for connecting individual household appliances, and this is proven to be efficient to handle various data with a centralized access. This is welcomed by many of the people as the applications are really cool to use. This technology is implemented in homes and is often used for various appliances by interconnecting it to each other. The main concept of this application is to integrate individual devices to have the data in a centralized position, once the data has been positioned centralized it is very easy to access those data from anywhere and anytime.
Remote access is one of the key features that anyone gets from the technology of IoT. Few of the benefits are listed here, they are, and one can have a secured remote access to one’s house. This is one of the most intelligent ideas to figure out the solution to turn a ‘Just home’ into a ‘Smart home’. This would so amazing and as well as easy to use the applications of IoT. Many are dreaming to have this technology implemented in their home; few examples are, turning on and off the TV with one mobile phone, same with accessing the main door and other appliances like a washing machine and air conditioner.

Industrial IoT

Industrial IoT is similar to the consumer IoT, but the difference is that it has this is used in a commercial area that is industries. Industrial IoT has just been introduced as a new era after IoT home. This technology has just set foot on the Industrial sectors which involves tremendous machinery due to the requirement of high productivity and maintenance, and implementing this technology will reduce the physical work and many of the work can be automated. This will make the work very efficient in order to come up with better productivity. This will sure make a tremendous change in the industries and factories.
Many of the industrial work will fall under this technology, few such are, development of the product, networking, routine production, making sure of the customer needs (that is quality assurance), and finally logistics, all these areas will be monitored by the with the help of Internet of Things. This will make the processes are running properly, as well as it will help the management to monitor the processes by creating transparency between each function and processes. It is expected to have many automated machines and robots in industries that will be involved in the production and quality assurance processes. All these types of machinery will have a centralized access to make it more efficient. This will even be implemented in the inventory and storage systems to monitor the stocks.
With having the same objective for both the areas, IoT has its own majesty over the future. But there are some differences between the application, processes and its usages in both the areas.
