Abstract

This work presents a comprehensive study on the design and implementation of an educational model for a smart home, leveraging the principles of the Internet of Things (IoT). The model encompasses three key levels: command, communication, and management, and integrates several subsystems, including communication, signalling, lighting control, temperature regulation, garbage container filling, nd sensor data monitoring. The hardware components for implementing the Mini Smart House, a practical application of the model, are detailed in the study. The Mini Smart House utilizes a range of technologies for efficient management and incorporates renewable energy sources for power. The model was independently produced by students participating in a STEM project, with research activities encompassing sketching, construction part creation, sensor assembly, Arduino board programming in the Arduino IDE environment, and system functionality testing. The Mini Smart House was validated within the STEM-center of the Physics and Mathematics Faculty of Ternopil Volodymyr Hnatiuk National Pedagogical University during the educational process and numerous trainings and seminars for pupils and teachers of computer science.
