Abstract
This master thesis concerns the current and future development in the area of intelligent houses and home automation. It also describes a system for home automation developed for this thesis. Key words in the design are dynamic behaviour, flexibility, transparency and adaptability. The prototype has been built with a central, Java based, server. To this server, modules handling different communication protocols can be connected at run time. To these modules, devices can connect over the specified communications protocols and register in the server, also at run time. Devices can be for control and supervision (computer or phone GUI), but also equipment that is to be controlled (lamps, ventilation, stereo) and equipment for notification... (More)
This master thesis concerns the current and future development in the area of intelligent houses and home automation. It also describes a system for home automation developed for this thesis. Key words in the design are dynamic behaviour, flexibility, transparency and adaptability. The prototype has been built with a central, Java based, server. To this server, modules handling different communication protocols can be connected at run time. To these modules, devices can connect over the specified communications protocols and register in the server, also at run time. Devices can be for control and supervision (computer or phone GUI), but also equipment that is to be controlled (lamps, ventilation, stereo) and equipment for notification (sensors). For communication, a message system has been developed. The server uses a MySQL database and also has support for building macros with extensive command and timer functionality. Finally, the system supports users and positioning using RFID. (Less)
