Dog and a cat tracker that connect to the internet over SIM card and allow the owner to monitor the movement and lethargy are also becoming popular.


India has one of the highest rate of household thefts specially in north India were independent homes are regular. Smart door locks with monitoring can enable homeowners to program them and get alert in case of breach and also at the same time alert the nearest police station. Home cameras which are internet enabled can allow you to monitor your home remotely.d. Smart Transportation: Self-driving cars with softwares, sensors and smart connectivity will change the transportation industry forever. Vehicles will drive on roads automatically without any manual activity. The hope for self-driving cars is to prevent accidents, relieve traffic jams etc. Lower carbon emissions is also a benefit for the environment.
