Efficient and robust security implementation in a smart home using the internet of things

Received Date:27 March 2020, Accepted Date:27 April 2020, Published Date:04 June 2020


Background/Objectives: Internet of Things (IoT) is considered as a new paradigm in a computing environment. The devices connected to the internet perform different functionalities. The objective of this paper is to present a model that consists of devices having different sensing capabilities. Methodology: The system would use ``Wi-Fi scanner'', ``Heat sensor'', "Motion sensor" etc. for sensing the movement of different physical objects to implement security in the smart home. Findings: The system based on our presented model has capabilities to replace the faulty devices in order to improve the efficiency and robustness for the implementation of security in smart homes.

Keywords: Internet of Things; Security; Robustness; Efficiency; Smart homes systems
