There is no single, universally accepted definition for the term “Internet of Things” (IoT)

As with any hyped technological disruption, a flurry of terms is appearing. The definitions for these terms vary widely and some are downright contradictory. Different definitions are used by various groups to describe or promote a particular view.
The Internet Society: ”The terms ’Internet of Things’ and ’IoT’ refer broadly to the extension of network connectivity and computing capability to objects, devices, sensors, and items not ordinarily considered to be computers. These ’smart’ objects require minimal human intervention to generate, exchange, and consume data; they often feature connectivity to remote data collection, analysis, and management capabilities. Networking and communications models for smart objects include those where exchanged data does not traverse the Internet or an IP-based network.”
