Abstract

Internet of Things (IoT) based systems, most predominantly, the machine to machine communication based systems, have evolved in the recent past which helped to increase the efficiency of services offered without much necessity of human interaction. In general, IoT cloud-assisted solutions could serve several applications, including the Smart Home Automation, due to the availability of high-speed mobile networks coupled with cost effective, accessible and fast embedded hardware. In fact, there exists a few smart home solutions in the market that aim at automating the basic operations of home appliances. However, most of these systems focus on mimicking the basic operations of the electrical switches. This paper attempts to unfold a Smart Home Automation system using Natural Language Processing (NLP) and IoT cloud solutions. The proposed system was able to remotely control smart homes in a secure and in a customized manner; the approach could precisely monitor home devices with the application of GoogleAPI for integrating devices. Experiments were carried out at the IoT Cloud research lab of IIIT Kottayam such that a mini-Smart Home environment was setup to remotely control the sensors such as humidity and temperatures of Smart Homes. The paper described a method to create an end user product using 3D modeling and 3D printing facilities. In addition, the paper has unfolded the state-of-the-art research works carried out in the field of smart home automation using NLPs.
