Abstract: Smart homes are ones that have an intelligent environment that enables dynamic configuration of its devices as well as interaction with its occupants, be it while they are inside the home or remotely while outside. This paper outlines the major technologies that support the realisation of smart homes. It describes the complete architecture and design of a prototype smart home system that integrates a variety of wireless information and communication technologies with a variety of sensors and appliances. The prototype system enables an authorised user to monitor and control home devices equipped with a smart interface structure using a mobile phone. The system is embedded with authentication and verification mechanisms that provide secure end-to-end processing. The system is scalable through a flexible architecture that easily expands the portfolio of devices to be monitored and controlled.
