Claim of US Patent No. 10,172,168

1. A method of pairing an IoT (Internet of things) device with a mobile terminal, comprising the steps of:dividing a plurality of application screens and displaying the plurality of the application screens in a touch screen of the mobile terminal;
providing at least one vibration area on each of the plurality of the application screens;
when the IoT device is contacted with a specific vibration area of the at least one vibration area, generating, in the specific vibration area, a vibration pattern corresponding to a specific application of the specific vibration area;
receiving vibration pattern information corresponding to the generated vibration pattern from the IoT device; and
performing pairing with the IoT device when the received vibration pattern information is identical to the generated vibration pattern.
