Smart devices are everyday objects that connect via the internet, allowing them to send and receive information. Manufacturers are embedding internet connectivity in everything from equipment like your car and your phone to normal household items like your vacuum or even your toothbrush! The data these items send and receive helps us give commands, track progress, automate daily routines and much more.
