The Internet of Things embodies the idea that different types of devices can be connected to the internet and configured to send and receive data. Houses can be set to turn lights on or off and turn the heat up or down. Security systems can be monitored over the internet. Cars can send data to a mechanic to speed up the diagnostic process during repairs. Refrigerators can let you know when you're out of milk. While all of this communication adds convenience, it also increases risk. This video explains the benefits and risks associated with the Internet of Things.
