The growth of internet-connected services, known as the Internet of Things (IoT), has led to a proliferation of new applications. One such application is the smart home, where household appliances and devices can be remotely monitored and controlled. To achieve this, appropriate network architecture and standard protocols are used to connect various devices to the internet, resulting in an "IoT-based smart home." However, managing and regulating the entire system, as well as ensuring the security of servers and smart homes, present challenges. This paper presents an IoT architecture and discusses the issues and difficulties faced by IoT-enabled smart home systems while also proposing potential solutions. Smart homes simplify home automation tasks and offer greater convenience to users. The Industrial Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has already demonstrated the potential of IoT, and the integration of IoT into smart homes is a logical next step. The article explores various aspects of IoT-based smart homes and highlights the need for proper management and security protocols. In conclusion, the study investigates the integration of IoT into smart homes, highlighting the challenges and solutions associated with the development of an IoT-based smart home system. The objective is to provide a framework for the development and management of IoT-based smart homes that will enhance the quality of life for users.
