The IOT (Internet of Things) covers all devices connected to the network that use the Internet of Things and the data sharing over the network. IOT is now turning into today's rapidly expanding technology and the future is glowing. Home Automation Systems is the most popular application of IOT. The recent training in IOT has now become IOE (Internet of everything). With this technology, one can use any application to access each machine, equipment and machinery in its vicinity. Each home will in future become an intelligent home, where users have remote access to all the appliances in their homes. The Augmented Reality (AR) is one of today's top trend technologies, namely the creation and visualization of digital solutions to problems in the real world. In the physical environment AR lets us view digital data in order to bridge the gap between the physical world and the digital world. AR utilizes the camera of any smart phone and the application utilizes the phone camera to show the digital environmental data before the consumer. There have been substantial study works on IOT. Security has been worked on by some researchers to improve data sharing encryption. Some tested several IOT-generating wireless systems. But the paradigm of communication is not concentrated. With regard to IOE, millions of IOT devices are going to be available and think about interacting with them with the ancient middleware application paradigm. The user cannot remember which specific interface which device is controlling. Moreover, the whole scope of IOT remains uncertain, although IOT is accessible and used, but yet additional characteristics have not been fully digitized. The purpose of our research is to merge Augmented Reality's strong digitization with IOT. Our study is also to add another digitized IOT function, which is digital wires rather than physical cables. With this strategy we can connect inputs to one or more outputs using digital IOT cables via AR, just by linking digital I / O points that we developed in our project. The physical function of any device may also be shared with another physical device, such as sharing the function of an oven timer switch with any device, such as a fan, or using a fan controller, not only to manage the fan velocity but also to digitally link it to a light bulb and regulate the intensity / brightness of light via regulator.
