Abstract

With the rising energy consumption and population, there is an urgent need to conserve energy in any way possible [1]. One of the leading causes of energy loss is the inability to access and operate home equipment remotely. This project focuses on designing and building a smart home automation system using Mosquitto Broker, which will be hosted on a Beagle Bone Black. The Beagle Bone Black is a lowcost, community-supported development platform with an AM3358 processor. Mosquitto is an open-source and lightweight message broker that implements the Message Queuing Telemetry Transport Protocol (MQTT). Mosquitto is suitable for use on all devices, from low-power board computers to full servers [2]. The finished smart home system should be able to provide users with new features in their homes, such as door access control, smart lighting system, fire alarm system, and area intrusion monitor. The system can be controlled wirelessly from anywhere in the world.
