As the internet of things becomes in-vogue and the concern for physical security moves more and more to the forefront of this society, many ideas and solutions to these concerns have begun to surface. One of the biggest concerns regarding this from a software perspective is the lack of cost friendly, open-source solutions, which have been instead substituted for proprietary SaaS systems with little to no control allowed from the end-user. ShmPi attempts to rectify this gap by presenting a proof of concept for a highly scalable smart home monitoring system using the internet of things which can perform at a rate similar to its contemporaries, while remaining open-source and user-friendly.
