Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology in which objects are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies to connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the Internet. The main goal of the Internet of things is the real-time operation of devices; as a result, daily life improvement and data collection are without human intervention. In this paper, we investigate IoT awareness from Greek citizens. A worldwide literature review about IoT is presented, and the results are connected with the theoretical study. Furthermore, in 2018, 22 billion devices connected with IoT worldwide, and by 2030 it is expected that 50 billion devices to be enabled too. An online questionnaire was developed by the use of Google forms and distributed via e-mail and social media. The statistical analysis of the responses of 387 participants concluded that the level of security, privacy, and familiarity significantly affects the use of IoT. Some of our hypotheses and findings in the current survey are the extent of IoT technologies that are represented in Greece, the gender that is more familiar with IoT technologies, and the association of the monthly income with IoT knowledge.
