The Internet of Things (IoT) is prevalent in today's world and is part of our everyday life. While the residential district gains in several respects, numerous problems are developed, such as data confidentiality and privacy. The community is worried, in reality, about what information might leak through IoT. Therefore, the need for a protected environment is necessary if data transmission from devices across the network is to be protected. As a consequence, this paper proposes a secure scheme for using audio steganography to secure data from Laptop, which is distributed as an IoT device to other devices, or on LAN or WAN networks, as an alternative protection strategy along with a home server. The outcome of the developed system shows that the amount of distortion exposed by the Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is low.
