The Internet of Things (IoT)—the ubiquitous computing vision of objects imbued with computational capacity, connected to and communicating with one another—has largely been conceived of in relation to industry. The most common example of IoT is tracking goods across supplies chains and gathering data along that journey in order to improve logistics. Domestic, or “in-home”, IoT is also a rapidly increasing domain for new products and services, for example through “smart” thermostats, refrigerators, and washing machines.
