Expansion in smart home technology assists people around the world to improve the quality of life individuals. Various smart home technologies considered in our work include Email based smart home systems, Bluetooth based smart home systems, Global System for Mobile communication or mobile based smart home systems, Short Messaging Service based smart home systems and Internet-based smart home systems. We need a low power device that transmits messages through a less verbose protocol. Owing to the ubiquitous availability of WiFi, all the appliances within a home can be connected through a common gateway (Raspberry pi3). This paper presents an overview of a lightweight Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol. Sensors and actuators are connected to Wemos-D1 board. In the prototype home, we implemented MQTT on Raspberry pi3 and Wemose-D1 board.

Keywords: MQTT; raspberry Pi3 board; home devices; sensors; wemose-D1 board.
