Aims and Scope

The world of home automation is changing and converging. As the IoT is increasingly being used for smart home use cases and there has been quite some increasing hype around all sorts of smart home labeled products and future home scenarios, the concept of the real connected smart home is more popular than ever. Home automation is an essential part of a smart home, and even the concept and reality of a smart or intelligent home as such go back to long before the term Internet of Things was even coined. This journal aims to address IoT development, gather researches on advance methodologies, strategies, frameworks, architectures and algorithms that can effectively be used for smart home in the age of internet of things.
