The operation of modern housing infrastructure is characterized by a constant increase in the cost of the limited resources used. This necessitates the priority implementation in the concept of a smart home of elements aimed at resource saving and their rational management. The study provides an overview of the implementation architectures of the internet of things (IoT) concept in the construction of home automation systems and the requirements they impose on the implementation of smart primary meters of controlled physical quantities. Based on a diversion analysis, a promising smart water meter was developed. The prototype is ergonomic and has a structural form factor convenient for further integration. The designed model of the electronic module of the water flow monitoring system implements, in addition to typical tasks, additional functionality: transfer of recorded indicators and technical information to the cloud storage, warning the user about an emergency situation, accumulation of current data in non-volatile memory. It is possible to use the accumulated statistics for training the predictive analysis module. The proposed architecture option will allow creating energy-efficient elements of home automation systems in the future.
