While many IoT inventions may seem unnecessary (some even call them stupid), it proves endless possibilities. With the right backing, the IoT will increase security and reporting. Although the protection of most IoT devices out there is less than desirable, the are examples – like MasterCard and Visa, proving secure IoT appliance.
