Internet of Things Based Energy Aware Smart Home Control System
The concept of smart home is widely favored, as it enhances the lifestyle of the residents involving multiple disciplines, i.e., lighting, security, and much more. As the smart home networks continue to grow in size and complexity, it is essential to address a handful among the myriads of challenges related to data loss due to the interference and efcient energy management. In this paper, we propose a smart home control system using a coordinator-based ZigBee networking. The working of the proposed system is three fold: 1) smart interference control system controls the interference caused due to the co-existence of IEEE 802.11x-based wireless local area networks and wireless sensor networks; 2) smart energy control system is developed to integrate sunlight with light source and optimizes the energy consumption of the household appliances by controlling the unnecessary energy demands; and 3) smart management control system to efciently control the operating time of the electronic appliances. The performance of the proposed smart home is testied through computer simulation. Simulation results show that the proposed smart home system is less affected by the interference and efcient in reducing the energy consumption of the appliances used in a smart home.
