Abstract

Internet of Things circles around connecting everyday devices each other via the Internet. With the passage of time, Internet of Things has grown, and is continuously growing. With this it has become a necessity of each individualís life. Little they are aware of the term itself, especially people in Pakistan. This research highlights how IoT is controlling everyone in some way or the other, but most of the Pakistanis have no recognition of using IoT in their devices while foreign users do. It also talks about security, a major challenge for the technology. The study analyzes a purpose built survey that compares local and foreign users on the awareness level and attitude with regards to IoT itself. The results conclude that most of the local participants are somehow using IoT technology but did not know that these are part of IoT. The survey also proves how all the users are dependent on IoT and would prefer using advanced form of IoT in future. All the participants, be they local or foreign, would like to have IoT in their lives if the issue of security is eliminated.
