The components that detect changes in the environments that IOT Devices are monitoring are the sensors. Sensors are available to detect almost anything that needs to be monitored. Examples include:

  • Cameras and light detectors including non-visible wavelengths
  • Motion and velocity recording and displacement detectors
  • Accelerometers and tilt sensors
  • Vibration detectors
  • Electric and magnetic field detectors
  • Fluid levels and leak detectors
  • Humidity and moisture monitors
  • Temperature monitors
  • Fluid flow monitors in pipes
  • Force detectors including for load, torque, strain, and pressure
  • Chemical solution concentration detectors
  • Chemicals leakage detectors
  • Gas detectors for various gas types
  • Acoustics and sound detectors
  • Proximity monitors
