Ashwini.R , Mrs. Pooja Mohnani. "Application of Wireless Sensor Network in Home Automation", International Journal of Computer & organization Trends (IJCOT), V4(3):64-71 May - June 2014, ISSN:2249-2593, Published by Seventh Sense Research Group.


This paper is based on wireless sensor network for home automation using Wi-Fi and Zigbee to automate the home .In order to use low power and low cost for the solution of automating the home using Wi-Fi and Zigbee technology. A prototype automation system for monitoring and controlling in home with sensor nodes and controlling nodes has been developed and tested in home. The system consists of sensor nodes, actuators nodes, router nodes, and one coordinator node.WSN is very helpful to implement the home automation system. Inside the home we have lot of electronic equipment to make our job easy. Here in this paper we implement the home automation system to advance the manual monitoring.
