Does devices (such as - Pi, Arduino, Google Nest) share some common protocol or properties

Dear All,

Hope you all are doing well!

I am planning to build a data mining system which I could use as my graduate level project also.

Purpose of the system

- It can be connected to almost every kind of device (an extension might need to be written for different kind of devices).  
- Collect data from those devices.  
- Filter the useful information from that data.
- Store it and that data can be used for various purposes. etc...

Some ground work -
As of now I am assuming that we will get all heterogeneous kind of data from various kinds of devices/sensors. However to build the system we need some data, based on that data or while analyzing that data, we can start building our product. We cannot afford to buy each and every kind of devices, however we are planning to buy Raspberry pi 3 and any of Google nest device. Which can eventually give us various kinds of data to analyze and a base to build our system?

Following are my queries -

1.> Do these devices (Raspberry pi, Arduino, goolge nest, various kind of sensors) share some common properties or protocols which we can use instead of buying each and every device?
2.> Is there any similar existing project?
3.> Am I going into the right direction? Or it would be like reinventing the wheel?
4.> Any suggestions/comments/advice?

Appreciate all you help and suggestions!

Apologies if hurrying up but any kind of pointers? Or help?
