IoT-based Smart Home Device Monitor Using Private Blockchain Technology and Localization

Marc Jayson Baucas, Stephen Andrew Gadsden, Petros Spachos

Internet of Things (IoT)-based smart home applications are rising in popularity. However, this trend attracts malicious activity, which causes cost-efficient security to be in high demand. This paper proposes a low-end design that reinforces the security of a home network. It uses private blockchain technology and localization via RSSI-based trilateration. We investigated the benefits of private blockchains over their public counterpart, and we improve the precision of the localization algorithm by testing it against different wireless technologies. The results conclude that using a private blockchain with a WiFi-based communication system produces the most efficient iteration of the proposed design.
