Last updated on March 20th, 2023 at 12:39 pm

Are you looking for Top IoT(Internet of Things) Projects to build in 2020? Then you are at the right place! Here are the Top 10 IoT  Projects You can Make in 2020.


IoT is one of those sectors which is going to transform into a multi-trillion dollar industry in near future. Hence learning IoT(Internet Of Things) can add more value and improve your creativity skills. This list contains details of the all-time top 10 IoT projects. Before you go through the post I want you to know that projects listed below are selected very carefully by keeping in mind each and every aspect.


NOTE: Please keep in mind that these projects are selected mainly on the basis of creativity and application And not merely on the basis of complexity involved. So when you go through these projects, don’t judge on the basis of difficulty only. These projects will give you a good idea of IoT(Internet Of Things) applications. Link to each project is given below the respective project’s summary.

Just try and make these projects to unleash that creative engineer within you!

6. Electroic door lock

[arve url=”” maxwidth=”555″ aspect_ratio=”4:3″ /]

OBJECTIVE: To build an IoT based advance electronic door having following features:

  (as stated in project website)                         

  • Unlocks whenever authenticated person walks by.
  • Automatically lock a deadbolt when the door closes
  • Report all “access granted/denied” and “door open” events to the Internet.
  • Lock still needed to be operable by school housing administration
  • Lock must be operable manually with a key from the outside and fingers from the inside (no “push to exit” button) ” source: speedy signals
