Background/Objectives: Home automation has been a booming field in the development of a modern home. The innovations and technology improvements have widely contributed to implementing smart home systems. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: In this paper appropriate sensors are used to detect room temperature, movements in room, light intensity and gas leakage through an ARM Microcontroller. The sensed data’s aretransmitted directly through WiFi to a webserver. Findings: The webserver monitors and to controls the home appliances light, fan, alarm and motor remotely. Communication can be done by 6Lowpan protocol which is an IPV6 protocol for low power wireless area networks.To utilize Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) for application level communication and Datagram transport layer to provide energy efficient security features. The proposed framework provides monitoring, control and security features for the entire home automation network. Conclusion/Improvements: The proposed framework provides a secured Home automation system design.
