Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of various devices that may be scattered across a large area and are capable of communicating with each other to achieve a shared goal. The field of IoT is growing continuously because of its potential to be a solution to a large number of areas ranging from a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) project to an enterprise-level solution. There are lots of components that need to work together for such a solution to work successfully and the process of developing the system is neither quick nor easy. In addition to the setup, there is also the factor of maintenance and support which needs to be reliable and secure. The purpose of this project is to design a framework that can be used to develop a solution that can be used to establish an infrastructure capable of managing and monitoring a large number of low-powered Arduino based WiFi-capable devices like, ESP8266 microcontroller. With the help of a few third-party libraries, we developed an easy-to-use low-cost framework, to package the device with firmware that makes the process of deployment of the sensory network quick and easy and a server, for the management of these devices.
