The Internet of Things is touching all spheres of life, be it in connecting cities together, making agricultural farms and health care smarter, predictable and more secure, and in industries it is set out to bring about changes that are similar to those of the industrial revolution that took place in the 19th and 20th century. It is estimated by pundits that in next 5 to 10 years, the Internet of Things will become a 50 billion dollar industry by itself, encompassing everything that it touches and goes upon. In order to get healthcare enabled into the IoT ecosystem, the sensors and the actuators related to it must be able to support the protocols that is required for the acquisition, processing and storing of data from the sensors to the IoT based infrastructure. Here, for a proposed model for a health care monitor using Internet of Things, the sensors characteristics, working principal, the protocol associated with it, it’s internal mechanism, and the results obtained when interfaced using a Raspberry Pi are discussed, laying the framework for the future of the sensors that need to be adapted to stay relevant in the future, when IoT transitions from concept to reality.
