Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most disruptive technologies nowadays which can efficiently connect, control, and manage intelligent objects that are connected to the Internet. IoT-based applications like smart education, smart agriculture, smart health care, smart homes, etc., which can deliver services without manual intervention and in a more effective manner. In this work, we have proposed an IoT-based smart home automation system using a microcontroller-based Arduino board and mobile-based Short Message Service (SMS) application working functionality. Wi-Fi connectivity has been used to establish communication between the Arduino module and automated home appliances. We have proposed a real-time scheduling strategy that offers a novel communication protocol to control the home environment with the switching functionality. Our simulation results show that the proposed strategy is quite capable to achieve high performance with different simulation scenarios.
