This paper describes MAIoT, a Multiagent-based Architecture which aims to coordinate Internet of Things (IoT) devices. MAIoT is distinguished by its capabilities for allowing dialogues between IoT devices. To support theses dialogue capabilities, the IoT devices are wrapped into rational agents with reasoning and dialogue capabilities.
