Development of a smart home is the trend in the coming future and such idea shall fit into most topics required in your final year project.
Jackie Man posted a good idea - one of the continuing problems with IoT is the security of the connected physical objects...

Hi sir.

Thank you for respond my question.
 I think smart home is a good idea. What if i concern about its device security instead of assemble it?
How do you think?

Device security on IoT devices is a big topic on its own.

You need to focus on one or two solutions on smart home in the market and do research on their vulnerabilities and make recommendations on how to improve them.

If you have done proper research, I am certain you will get a good grade and will get a good chance to get a good job after graduation.

IoT devices with bi-directional communication to something like Azure IoT hub plugged into machine learning.

Here is small IoT project I did for fun, hope that you publish yours on EE for us to enjoy :)

I am currently fooling around with a mining simulator (pits, plants, stockpiles, trains, truck etc.) that will report all activities to Azure IoT and display it on PowerBI dashboard
