Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of human Meshing with everything that exists around us like our daily life communication through mobiles or the internet. In the next two or three years of (2020), the internet will be changed to IoT. IoT can connect the smart objects through different technologies like Bluetooth, ZigBee, and Radio Frequency Identifier (RFID). This paper highlights the effects of IoT on human beings and their privacy, we suggest how to use IoT with smart home technology to improve the living style. Smart home technology provides automated, intelligent, smart, innovative and ubiquitous services to residential users through Information Communication Technology (ICT). The IoT usage has some drawbacks like fraud and looting people, as a human being will be a part of the IoT. We also discuss practical examples of a point-to-point connection between the devices. In IoT enabled smart home environment various things such as lighting, home applications, connecting computers, security camera, linking home with Civil Defense.

IoT is a new concept that connects everything to control the physical environment. The type of control can be through monitoring, observing, processing, and analyzing data that can be generated by sensor devices, intelligent objects, or reboots . The development of computer networks led to the transition to a new stage, through which networks can be connected more than one device. Mobile phones have grown exponentially and many applications have been built on phones, to making phones smart, like smart TVs, smartwatch, and smart pouch. Hence, these smart inventions were imposed on the user, and there is a high demand to connect these things with each other through a single network. This network can identify everything using new IP Address (IPv6). With this acceleration in technology, we are able to create a smart home. Where we have a suitable environment to occupy everything that is intelligent inside the house.[2, 3] The idea of a smart home began with the control of energy and electricity, which are the main elements of the individual’s expenses. Then came the smart gadgets at home, not only these gadgets on electricity, but entered the cooking, mirror, and even with a cup of coffee. IoT can make human life more enjoyable and comfortable compared to the past. Using the Smart Home, we can control and monitor the associated applications in its range. The most common applications can be lighting, heating, temperature, windows, doors, and curtains. Some home applications can be linked to mobile devices. A smart life helps people to reduce their efforts, time, and cost. A smart home also referred to as connected home or e-Home is an environment for living , that has a highly advanced automatic system. A smart home appears “intelligent” because its daily activities are monitored by a computer. A smart home consists of many technologies via home networking for improving quality of living. A smart home is a place that has highly advanced automatic systems for controlling and monitoring lighting and temperature, home appliances, multimedia equipment, and security systems, and many other functions. IoT plays an important role in building a smart home. Through IoT almost every object of our daily life in a home can be connected to the internet. IoT allows monitoring and controlling all of these connected objects regardless of time and location. In this research, we consider two main issues. Firstly, we will collect information about tools and things. We will try to find a way hot to link all these accessories to each other using IP addresses. Secondly, we will talk about the impact of this technology on human using for a long time. In conclusion, we will present a low that will be able to control the fair use of this development and progress in society. There must be legislation and laws so that people can be reassured whenever they are in need. The set of laws and regulations should be added when needed and when there is confusion or misunderstanding of the method of use. This paper was organized as follows. In section II, we describe the existing research work. In section III, we describe the outgoing and future work. In section IV, we provide a conclusion and recommendations.
