Welcome to the Internet of Things Stack Exchange

The Internet of Things is an umbrella term for automation systems consisting of sensors, data processing and different types of control mechanisms. These applications range from smart cities (parking, traffic management, public transport), farming and buildings (with home-automation and security being the current consumer-facing aspects of the technology).

This site is about both developing these network-connected smart things and using the consumer products that build on this technology.
