Internet of Things (IOT)

The Azure Internet of Things (IoT) is a collection of Microsoft-managed cloud services that connect, monitor and control billions of IoT assets. In simpler terms, an IoT solution is made up of one or more IoT devices that communicate with one or more back-end services hosted in the cloud.


IoT devices

An IoT device is typically made up of a circuit board with sensors attached that use WiFi to connect to the internet. For example:


A pressure sensor on a remote oil pump.

Temperature and humidity sensors in an air-conditioning unit.

An accelerometer in an elevator.

Presence sensors in a room.


Create and develop industry-specific cloud solutions on the only platform with intelligent edge-to-cloud technologies that come with security, privacy, and compliance built-in. Drive transformation and achieve desired business outcomes by building intelligent environments that allow you to connect, monitor, automate, and model devices and applications—all with the Microsoft Cloud.
