Purpose: Nowadays, IoT, or the internet of things, is a popular technological term. Any device operation is possible anywhere in the world using IoT. It controls the Device using a couple of telemetry protocols. Here we will describe how we can experiment with IoT using the Sinric Pro IoT platform. We will test without any hardware. We will also operate our Device from Alexa and Sinric Pro mobile app. the IoT client is written in C#. The complete project code is adopted from Sinric Pro. The Researcher can modify and integrate the code as their research needs.
Design/Methodology/Approach: Sinric Pro is a popular IoT service. First, we create our account on the Sinric Pro website. Then we configure devices and note the API key, secret key, and device id. We add those keys to our C# application and run the client application. The running client receives a command from various sources. We also Configure the mobile application to send the command through apps.
Findings/Result: This procedure helps us understand the data flow between the IoT server and the client. We can understand what happens inside the client application using a state diagram. We can use it as a demonstration tool and possibly to trigger the actual Device. Fetching the load status from the client application might trigger the controller board through the serial port.
Originality/Value: Sometimes Researcher cannot get the actual hardware for the experiment due to availability or cost constraints. This procedure might help them. Working with existing hardware also need some basic electronics knowledge. Otherwise, severe damage can occur inside the working system. There is no such risk in this procedure, and it produces the result efficiently.
Paper Type: Simulation-based Research.
