Abstract: Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies, and the trading of digital assets were among the first uses for blockchain technology. However, blockchain has many other advantages as well. This paper details the application of blockchain technology to the problem of domestic safety. In order to demonstrate how blockchain technology can be used to secure mobile agents in the IoT, this paper will make use of Ethereum and a smart contract. Malicious mobile agents that attempt to infiltrate internet of things (IoT) systems can be identified through blockchain transactions. The blockchain centre is the central repository for all records, guaranteeing their verifiability and making it impossible to forge them. The outcomes of the evaluations show that the proposed security solutions are superior to the ones currently in use. Our research suggests that the proposed blockchain-enabled solution can enhance smart home security while also allowing for more nuanced user input.
