Thing about IOT is it does two main things, informs, and/or controls.

For different people the advantages are going to be different, but for some people there's a lot of anxiety involved in whether they did or didn't do something at home before they left. You could argue IOT can reduce their anxiety and therefore it gives them a higher quality of life. But possibly they just find other things to be anxious about :)

We do IOT for farmers, it allows them to manage their crops far more effectively, saves them money.
