Advances in the development of new communication platforms have allowed control and automation systems to become faster and more robust, especially in the industrial sector. These platforms are based on the integration of sensors and devices; however, their implementation has been mainly limited by their high cost.An alternative as a communication platform is the Internet of Things (IoT), which has been growing very fast in recent years thanks to its low cost and, generally, open source for its implementation. For this reason, its use is increasingly common in different fields of control and automation in industry .
The IoT consists of the integration of sensors and devices, in everyday objects, which are connected to the internet through fixed and wireless networks. Due to their size and cost, the sensors are easily integrable in homes, work environments and public places . In this way, any object is capable of being connected and being present on the network, making use of and taking advantage of the existing communication infrastructure .
