Consumer electronics devices, such as refrigerators, washing machines, TVs, smartphones, and household appliances, have become integral to human activities. However, these devices are vulnerable to security breaches and cyber-criminal threats, which can result in the theft and misuse of sensitive information. Existing security surveys and proposed schemes have encountered limitations in terms of redundancy and effectiveness. In this paper, we present a novel approach that ensures secure and transparent communication in consumer electronics. We introduce a multi-criterion decision-making model called TOPSIS, along with a weighted product model, to enhance the security and accuracy of the system. Furthermore, our proposed scheme employs a blockchain system for continuous tracking and monitoring of devices, ensuring accountability and surveillance of their past communications. Through comprehensive validation and verification against existing approaches using various security metrics, our proposed scheme demonstrates superior performance and effectiveness.
