The IoT is a name for the vast collection of “things” that are being
networked together in the home and workplace (up to 20 billion by 2022
according to Gardner, a technology consulting firm). That is a very vast
collection. And they may be underestimating it.
We all have large numbers of computers in a modern house. I just did
a walk-through of my house, ignoring my office (which is filled with about
another 100 computers). I found 65 different devices having embedded
computers. I’m sure I missed some of them. Now of those computer-based
devices, I counted 20 of them that have IP addresses, although I know that
I am missing a few (such as the thermostat). So in a real sense, this house
has 20 IoT devices. And it is only 2020 as of the writing of this book. With
over 100 million households in the United States alone, 20 billion IoT
devices somehow don’t seem so many.
