Since the launch of the very first smartphone by IBM back in 1994, the use of Apps to enhance our daily lives has grown considerably, so that we may improve our efficiency and keep us connected. In recent years, smart security App technology has come under scrutiny as to how secure it really operates in terms of cyber security.
Smartphone Apps keep us connected with friends through social media, enable us to check our email, check our bank balance, research information, play games, watch videos, listen to music and now with its connect-ability into the home becoming more popular than ever, we can control our heating and lighting through the touch of a button. The technical term for connecting inanimate objects using smartphone technology is called Internet of Things and the industry is estimated to connect 30 billion gadgets into our digital infrastructure by 2020, according to predictions by IDC.com. Household items such as washing machines, kettles and fridges are already seeing developments in combining this technology with the way in which we use them daily and so it is now certain that this is how our homes will operate in the very near future.
