A compact, dual-band 1 × 2 coupled monopole printed antenna array design is proposed in this paper for indoor IoT-based smart home devices and sensors. With an overall dimension of 30 × 70 × 1.5 mm3, the presented design is operational at two frequency bands ranging from 3.6 to 4.3 GHz and from 5.6 to 6.6 GHz with stable impedance matching. The coupled planar monopole configuration ensures a consistent radiation performance over a wide bandwidth. To verify the practical implementation of the antenna on an IoT platform's device, the effects of dielectric height and ground plane variation on impedance matching over a wide frequency of operation are also discussed.
