1.1 Internet of Things


In general, there is no accepted definition about the Internet of Things. Actually, there are many different groups of people that have defined the term, although its initial use has been attributed to an expert on digital innovation named Kevin Ashton [1]. We get a common idea in all the definitions that the first version of the Internet was about data created by human, while the next version is about data created by things, that’s why it called the Internet of things.

There are many definitions for the Internet of Things. Below come some of the definitions:

IoT was generally defined as “dynamic global network infrastructure with self-configuring capabilities based on standards and interoperable communication protocols; physical and virtual ‘things’ in an IoT have identities and attributes and are capable of using intelligent interfaces and being integrated as an information network” [2].

The purpose of IoT is to increase the functions of the first version of the Internet and make it more useful. With IoT, users can share both information provided by humans that contained in databases and also information provided by things in physical world [3]. We can describe the IoT as the connection of physical things to the Internet and to each other for various useful purposes through different intelligent technologies, creating a smart ecosystem of pervasive computing. It can also be described as including embedded intelligence in individual objects that can notice changes in their physical state.

The common definition of IoT is that computers, sensors, and objects interact with each other and process data, therefore we can state that IoT is a new technology system combined with a a number of information technologies.

The Internet of Things combines different technologies into a semi-autonomous network. It connects individual devices to the network and to each other. There are also controller systems in the network (software and services) that act as brains of the system for processing data by analyzing and using the data collected by the connected devices to make decisions and initiate actions from the same or other devices [4].

The central objective of IoT is to enable us to uniquely identify, signify, access and control things at any time and anywhere by using internet [5]. The interconnected device networks can result in a large number of intelligent and autonomous applications and services bringing significant personal, professional, and economic benefits [6].

Smart environments are aimed to exploit rich combinations of small computational nodes to identify and deliver personalized services to the user while they interact and exchange information with the environment [8]. IoTs technology can be applied to create smart homes in order to provide intelligence, comfort and to improve the quality of our lives.


1.2 Smart Home


A “smart home” can be defined as a home which is automated through the application of the Internet of Things technologies and capable of reacting to requirements of the inhabitants, providing them comfort, security, safety and entertainment [9].

In the future, the IoT will anticipate to have significant home and business applications, improving the quality of life and the world‘s economy. With IoT, it is possible to access and control the electrical devices installed in your house remotely anywhere and anytime in the world. For example, smart-homes will enable their inhabitants to automatically open their garage when reaching home, prepare their coffee, control air conditioning systems, smart TVs and other appliances inside the home. Smart devices and automation systems make up Smart Homes. Everything connected with the help of Internet. Simple home automation uses timers and clocks to enable desired operations, but smart home technology can handle more complex operations and trigger devices based on input from other devices [4].

Basically, smart homes are equipped with advanced automatic systems for various preprogrammed operations and tasks such as temperature control, lighting, multi-media, window and door operations, etc. The smart home environment is also referred to as ambient intelligence, which is sensitive and adaptive to modern human and social needs [10]. SH is a

very promising area, which has different benefits such as providing increased comfort, greater safety and security, a more rational use of energy and other resources thus contributing to a significant savings. This research application domain is very important and will increase over time as it also offers powerful means for helping and supporting special needs of the elderly and people with disabilities [11], for monitoring the environment [12] and for control.

According to [13], the primary objectives of a Smart Home are to increase home automation, simplify energy management, and reduce environmental releases. Energy consumption and occupants’ comfort are key factors when assessing smart home environments [14].



 Now days all have busy life for e.g. person staying somewhere for job and another someone come and if you having an important meeting can’t pick them and they don’t have keys of home. This will put you in trouble. So with help of this project sitting in office person can open home for our people. If you are working whole day in office and after your office work you don’t want to do household works then home will do its own works like task of filling water, charging devices in absence of home owner. If you come home and your freeze will tell you what you can make in eating without opening it from the contents of food which are present in is then how awesome. If our daily life will become easily and less complex it will be than the golden era of technology.

It was initially intended to work with Lua programming dialect, be that as it may, as ESP8266 has it’s own library for Arduino IDE and NodeMCU has its own installed voltage controller (to spare the ESP module from voltage surges and to enable you to associate the board straightforwardly to the USB port of your PC) in addition to you don’t to hold the FLASH and RESET catches like on the conventional ESP8266. The NodeMCU ends up being a perfect for engineers who need to begin with ESP8266 WiFi module family.

NodeMCU Dev Kit/board comprises of ESP8266 wifi empowered chip. The ESP8266 is a minimal effort Wi-Fi chip created by Espressif Systems with TCP/IP convention. For more data about ESP8266, you can allude ESP8266 WiFi Module.

There is Version2 (V2) accessible for NodeMCU Dev Kit i.e. NodeMCU Development Board v1.0 (Version2), which as a rule comes in dark shaded PCB. NodeMCU Dev Kit has Arduino like Analog (i.e. A0) and Digital (D0-D8) sticks on its board.

It underpins serial correspondence conventions i.e. UART, SPI, I2C and so forth.

Utilizing such serial conventions we can associate it with serial gadgets like I2C empowered LCD show, Magnetometer HMC5883, MPU-6050 Gyro meter + Accelerometer, RTC chips, GPS modules, touch screen shows, SD cards and so on.

Figure 6 demonstrates the NodeMCU microcontroller which we will use in our model.

Transfers: Relays are switches that open and close circuits electromechanically or electronically. Transfers control one electrical circuit by opening and shutting contacts in another circuit. As transfer charts appear, when a hand-off contact is regularly open (NO), there is an open contact when the hand-off isn’t invigorated. At the point when a hand-off (Figure 7) contact is Normally Closed (NC), there is a shut contact when the hand-off isn’t invigorated. In either case, applying electrical current to the contacts will change their stateTransfers are for the most part used to switch littler streams in a control circuit and don’t more often than not control expending gadgets with the exception of little engines and Solenoids that draw low amps. Regardless, transfers can “control” bigger voltages and amperes by having an opening up impact on the grounds that a little voltage connected to transfers loop can bring about a huge voltage being exchanged by the contacts.

Voltage Regulator 7805: The voltage regulator IC 7805 (figure 8) is actually a member of 78xx series of voltage regulator ICs. It is a fixed linear voltage regulator. The xx present in 78xx represents the value of the fixed output voltage that the particular IC provides. For 7805 IC, it is +5V DC regulated power supply. This regulator IC also adds a provision for a heat sink. The input voltage to this voltage regulator can be up to 35V, and this IC can give a constant 5V for any value of input less than or equal to 35V which is the threshold limit.

Resistor: A resistor is an electrical component that limits or regulates the flow of electrical current in an electronic circuit. Resistors (figure 9) can also be used to provide a specific voltage for an active device such as a transistor. All other factors being equal, in a direct-current (DC) circuit, the current through a resistor is inversely proportional to its resistance and directly proportional to the voltage across it. This is the well-known Ohm’s Law. In alternating-current (AC) circuits, this rule also applies as long as the resistor does not contain inductance or capacitance. Resistors can be fabricated in a variety of ways. The most common type in electronic devices and systems is the carbon-composition resistor. Fine granulated carbon (graphite) is mixed with clay and hardened. The resistance depends on the proportion of carbon to clay; the higher this ratio, the lower the resistance.

LED INDICATOR:  light-emitting diode (LED) (see figure 10) is a semi-conductor device that emits visible light when an electric current passes through it. The light is not particularly bright, but in most LEDs it is monochromatic, occurring at a single wavelength. The output from an LED can range from red (at a wavelength of approximately 700 nanometers) to blue-violet (about 400 nanometers). Some LEDs emit infrared (IR) energy (830 nanometers or longer); such a device is known as an infrared-emitting diode (IRED). It will be used to indicate power in a circuit.

IC L293D: L293D is a typical Motor driver or Motor Driver IC which allows DC motor to drive on either direction. L293D (see figure 11) is a 16-pin IC which can control a set of two DC motors simultaneously in any direction. It means that you can control two DC motor with a single L293D IC. It works on the concept of H-bridge. H-bridge is a circuit which allows the voltage to be flown in either direction.

Figure: 11 IC L293D

IC BASE: The 16 pin IC base acts as a removable 16 pin IC holder that can be soldered directly to the PCB while the IC remains interchangeable. Required for sensitive ICs which are temperature sensitive and cannot be soldered to the board or at places where the IC needs to be replaced and for microcontroller based applications where the IC needs to be removed for.

Zero PCB Board: A printed circuit board (PCB) mechanically supports and electrically connects electronic components or electrical components using conductive tracks, pads and other features etched from one or more sheet layers of copper laminated onto and/or between sheet layers of a non-conductive substrate. Components are generally soldered onto the PCB to both electrically connect and mechanically fasten them to it.

Arduino Software: Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board (often referred to as a microcontroller) and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer (see figure 16), used to write and upload computer code to the physical board.

The Arduino platform has become quite popular with people just starting out with electronics, and for good reason. Unlike most previous programmable circuit boards, the Arduino does not need a separate piece of hardware (called a programmer) in order to load new code onto the board – you can simply use a USB cable. Additionally, the Arduino IDE uses a simplified version of C++, making it easier to learn to program. Finally, Arduino provides a standard form factor that breaks out the functions of the micro-controller into a more accessible package.

6 Limitations


6.1 Limitations of Smart Homes

1. Establishment: Depending on the many-sided quality of the framework, introducing a home computerization gadget can be a huge weight on the property holder. It can either cost you cash in the event that you enlist an outside contractual worker or cost you time in the event that you dare to do it without anyone else’s help.

2. Complex Technology: Automating everything in life may sound amazingly engaging, however now and again a decent out-dated flip of the switch is a considerable measure simpler than going after your advanced cell to turn lights on and off. Before you choose which framework is ideal for you, consider how far you truly need to bring home mechanization in your family unit.

3. Framework Compatibility: Controlling all parts of home robotization from one incorporated stage is essential, however not all frameworks are perfect with each other. Your security framework, for instance, may expect you to sign in to one area to oversee settings, while your brilliant indoor regulator may expect you to sign in to another stage to turn the aeration and cooling system on and off. To genuinely use the comfort of home robotization, you may need to put resources into concentrated stage innovation to control all frameworks and gadgets from one area.

4. Cost: Even however the cost of home mechanization frameworks has turned out to be significantly more reasonable as of late, the cost to buy and introduce a gadget can in any case include. Customer Reports offers an extensive variety of data and bits of knowledge – including costs – on the best home mechanization frameworks available.

5. Unwavering quality: A savvy home will be to a great degree dependent on your web association. On the off chance that your association drops you’ll be left with a great deal of savvy items that won’t work. Furthermore, remote signs can be hindered by different gadgets in your home and make a portion of your shrewd items work gradually or not in any way.
