The advent of the concepts of Internet of Things has revolutionized and impacted not only the information technology sector but also finance, manufacturing, and the home. The penetration of wireless communication technologies based on mobile networks, bluetooth, and radio-based communication such as Wi-fi, RFID, and NFC has significantly contributed to widespread adoption and acceptance. This research tests the validity of an IoT enabled “marionette” which is armed with an array of sensors, and actuators to achieve easy communications between the user and a home automation system. The system is an integration of a number of IoT modules that provides an automation for several tasks including home utilities, personal/banking information dissemination mechanism, and security. The analysis of the system based on the comparison with traditional one and the power consumption evaluation depicted the need to implement this system for smarter, safer, and easy living in homes.
