The internet of things (IOT) continues to transform the world, and in many countries is now an integral part of our everyday lives-influencing everything from the way that we intercommunicate to how we conduct business. Innovators continue to find ways to integrate IOT into uses as far flung as fashion to medicine. This survey looks at how IOT is currently being integrated into the built environment for the purpose of saving energy and improving occupants' livelihoods. In particular, it reviews…
