Internet of Things (IoT) is made up of millions of devices generating large amounts of heterogeneous data from multiple sources. These devices can be from multiple manufacturers which makes their use in terms of data acquisition, processing, analysis and actions on these data challenging. Additionally, all these data must be analyzed and correlated in real time for the early detection of situations of interest (complex events) and subsequent decision making. These complex events must be able to automatically trigger decisions and be stored in a secure, immutable and accessible way. In this context, Event-Driven Applications (EDAs) are a solution to meet these needs, however, developing such applications requires vast knowledge in certain technologies. To address these challenges, an EDA is proposed in this paper to integrate Complex Event Processing (CEP) and blockchain through the low-code paradigm. This proposal allows for the development of EDAs in a user-friendly way. These applications make it possible to integrate IoT devices from multiple manufacturers and with different data formats together with CEP technology for complex event detection and blockchain for secure, immutable and accessible event storage. To demonstrate the feasibility, the architecture was applied and evaluated in a case study related to measuring and acting on air quality using IoT devices that measure different pollutants and factors such as temperature, humidity and wind. The results show that the graphically designed EDAs facilitate real-time analysis of the collected IoT data via a CEP engine, whose outcome is transparently and automatically registered in a blockchain network.
