Context-based pairing allows devices to leverage environmental cues in order to pair the devices that are ‘sensing’ the same ambient changes. It allows IoT systems to be more autonomous by taking away the need for human-device interaction for pairing by proving that the nodes are co-located. The existing work on context-based device pairing focuses on devices that are always powered on and are thus able to capture all the ambient changes in their environment. We present a system that aims to pair heterogeneous devices as long as they have at least one common sensing modality for devices that may lose power and are thus unable to capture the entire context.
