Background/Objectives: Home automation is becoming more important day by day due to its numerous advantages. Home automation technology provides essential security to homes and associated control operations. This paper deals with the design and implementation of secure home automation using Raspberry Pi. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The proposed technology is to design a basic home security application on Raspberry Pi through reading and posting of messages in social networking sites. This data can be shared to authorized user via social networking sites to achieve home automation. Findings: Raspberry Pi board is a flexible embedded processor and with the support of open source packages the required camera system and systems for Facebook management and one time pass word management are implemented. The GPIO pins are sufficient for external control. Conclusion/Improvements: The system developed provides user friendly automation for security of home using Facebook and can be enhanced in future using bio metric authentication.
