How is NAT failing?

All my devices, except the ISP connected router, connect via NAT. Unless I explicitly configure some tunnels on that router, the internet cannot initiate connections to those devices. In the case of all these IoT, how is NAT being circumvented? Is NAT not how typical consumer things connect to the internet?
