Well, IoT is a very vast technology which is yet to explode. It is not only limited to home automation (aka 'Domotics') but has widespread visions in every known field to humanity.
Smart wearable: Are rapidly becoming an indispensable part of our daily lives.
Smart home: The example mentioned by Charan Kumar.
Smart city: From consumer products to transport vehicles, from event locations to human beings, the concept of smart city connects them all. (Smart parking, edu-service, health service, traffic service, energy management, facility management, emergency.)
Smart environment: Development of resource-constrained devices connected to the Internet also means that applications like 'earthquake or tsunami early-warning system' can be used by emergency services to provide more effective aid.
Smart enterprise:
Creating smart, connected workplaces. The smart, connected workplace is full of emerging IoT related technologies. Think wearables, 3D printers, and any other sensor or control technology that can be connected to the network.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of things (physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators) connected through internet which enables these things to exchange data. This creates opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, resulting in efficiency improvements, economic benefits, and reduced human exertions.

In simple terms we can say IoT is a system of things integrated with sensors, softwares, electronics which are connected to each other & can exchange data or Information with other connected devices.

The IoT soultions are spread across wide areas and some are listed below

Smart Home
IoT devices part of home automations like lighting, temperature control, air conditioning, security systems etc.

Enterprise applications
IoT devices used in corporate & business

Infrastructure applications
Monitoring & controlling of infrastructure like bridges, railways, roads, traffic etc.

Integration in manufacturing area with sensors for identification, communication, tracking etc is improving the efficiency of manufacturing area. Example like opening the door automatically when truck comes.

There are numerous IoT applications in farming such as collecting data on temperature, rainfall, humidity, wind speed, pest infestation, and soil content. This data can be used to automate farming techniques, take informed decisions to improve quality and quantity, minimize risk and waste, and reduce effort required to manage crops.

Environmental monitoring
IoT solutions for environmental protection , monitoring rivers, water quality , forest area etc.

Energy Monitoring
Lot of power sources can be connected & can communicate each other for better utilization of power.

Medical & Healthcare
IoT devices for health monitorings & other activities in hospitals, health centers.

The number of IoT devices increased 31% year-over-year to 8.4 billion in 2017 and it is estimated that there will be 30 billion devices by 2020
Some of the major IoT platforms are listed below

Google Cloud IoT
AWS IoT Core
Microsoft Azure IoT
IBM Watson IoT
Bosch IoT Suite
Dell IoT
Salesforce IoT
Oracle IoT cloud platform
