Abstract

This paper reviews current Internet of Things frameworks integrating embedded and distributed sensing and actuation in the context of research prototyping and the do-it-yourself movement. It focuses on the open-source and open-access technologies that can be applied into wiring smart cities, smart buildings, and smart building components. The paper contextualizes this discussion through the examples of the ESP8266 microcontroller (also known as NodeMCU) and Raspberry Pi single-board computer as well as web services such as Node-RED and If This Then That (IFTTT). The value of these platforms lies in the quasi-compatibility with other systems, scalability, and direct applicability to building technology prototyping. As such, they provide a natural and effective development path for a prototype to a full integration implementation.
