Wireless technology such as GSM/GPRS and Wi-Fi has taken on an important role in our daily life. The noticeable improvement of these technologies has led to advancement in home automation, where people can enjoy comfort and secure living places. This project proposes a ZigBee-based cost effective solution to control and monitor home appliances remotely and to enable home security against intrusion in the absence of a homeowner using the wireless sensor network kit from national instruments. A wireless sensor network, connected to a GSM modem, can send and receive alarming and controlling SMSs and remotely control the system using an internet web page. Also a security camera is embedded within the system to send alarm SMS and snap an image in case of a visitor or intruder. The system is implemented and evaluated among different sample applications spanning home security, climate control, hazard alarming, and appliance control with remote access and control features to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed system. Moreover a small-scale live demo model of the smart house is constructed to proof the concept
