Internet of things (IoT) is a complex system with few best practices in building ones, especially on handling real-time communication between IoT devices to the Internet. A framework is often used to fasten building IoT system. This paper present Mobile Internet of Things (MIOT), a framework which use a smartphone as the main component to handle communication between IoT device and the internet. A smartphone is used as the communication gateway (relay) for IoT devices and not as the IoT controller as in common Smartphone-IoT approach. For evaluation purpose, two implementations of IoT prototype scenario is built, an environmental monitoring and a remote controller (RC) car. The experiment shows a quick and easy deployment of IoT system. The Environment Monitoring able to send data to the server in real-time, and control The RC Car with a reasonable response time.

The experiment on 200 ms interval between each packet, shows that MIOT Framework has round-trip latency between MIOT Server and IoT hardware for ≈ 88.007 ms. The addition of smartphone as the main component in the framework (MIOT Apps) contribute to additional latency ≈ 13.145 ms.

Using a Smartphone as a gateway for IoT in MIOT Framework is possible and promising. It can be used as a best practice to develop a reliable IoT system which reduces time, effort, and learning overhead on building IoT systems.
