The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging technology in the construction industry, especially in Malaysia. There are concerns and problems resulting from the use of IoT, such as the lack of exposure to emerging technology and the use of outdated methods in the construction industry, and the inability to adapt IoT to the lives of the public and businesses when they are aware of its presence. The goal of this study is therefore to identify the use of IoT in the construction industry and to identify the challenges of using IoT in construction, as well as suggestions to promote the use of IoT in the construction industry. This research used qualitative method, which was interviewing method, to accomplish these objectives. Respondents to this study were three Consultants from Johor Bahru, Johor.
