Smart Homes and the Internet of Things

Issue Brief from Atlantic Council and I Am The Cavalry

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next step in the evolution of wireless networks, Big data, and connected devices, as sensors shrink in size and migrate from our smartphones to other everyday objects. Analysts predict the IoT will double in size to nearly 50 billion things by 2020, comprising a $1.7 trillion market. Some of these smart things already monitor the performance of power plants, factories, and jet engines; others collect our vital signs from bracelets and watches. In each of these cases, the IoT is both saving lives and transforming industries and societies.
