Hi guys!

I'm making a program for a Wireless connection from any kind of object that will help people's lives easier. I know that there already TV monitors that can be connected through a wireless connection. I want to create the same program for things that will be useful for the people's daily activity. For example, Wireless Fan, Wireless Start Button of Car, Wireless Dog Fence, Wireless Auto Door Locked, Wireless Cooking Range, Wireless Wireless Coffe Maker, Wireless everything. Can anyone share a command program on how to start this kind of project?

Home automation is a very big area. The software depends on the hardware.

Devices that are labeled as IoT (Internet of Things) like coffee pots, Refrigerators, Nanny Cameras, Thermostats etc. are connected by standard WiFi. They either use a phone application, web interface or maybe include a Windows/Mac application. Anything not using a web browser would require an application programming interface from the manufacture. I don't know how many manufactures support linux

For devices that are not wireless IoT like lights, fans use what is known as a hub. They use a phone app or Windows/Mac application or voice control. They convert a WiFi command to something that the device understands. Again you would need to know the API for that hub. There are several manufactures that have their own hub system. Again I don't know how many manufactures support linux.

There is Insteon, X10, Z wave technology that you can interface directly but may not be open source.
