Tech We’re Talking About: IoT and DIY Cameras
The internet of things (IoT) is not just a topic for technology professionals – it affects our daily lives at home and in the office. Our team recently got the chance to learn the ins and outs of IoT from our Vice President of Development. Ron shared practical applications of the technology, including how to build a DIY Wi-Fi camera at home. This was a great follow-up to our recent Machine Learning and AI discussion. If you want to know more about IoT, we included a few takeaways and the tools below!

A few things we learned:
- “Things” range in size and complexity, from a light switch to a self-driving car.
- Homes are one example of a network with associated applications and controllers.
