Smart Home Powered by Social Network for Citizen Security

Víctor H. Benítez, Gustavo C. Soto, Luis C. Félix-Herrán, and Jesús Pacheco
Abstract—Nowadays, the Internet of Things is used to transfer information from human to human and from human to machine. In this paper, we propose the use of IoT platforms to link those homes that are equipped with IoT capabilities, in order to increase security and prevent from a crime to a fire, and even monitor health status of a person. Using a microcontroller, it is possible to send information to a cloud server capable of sharing this information with other households connected to the platform, as well as allowing linking this data to one of the most used social networks in the world: Facebook. Linking smart homes with social network, allows to consult the status of sensors and IoT devices empowering citizen security against crime, violence and events that could put the integrity of people at risk both in their property and their health. The study is carried out for a particular region of Latin America, given its high rates of violence against citizens that have occurred in recent years.

Index Terms—Security, internet of things, smart home, citizen security.
