A home network system guarantees to provide a family with a safe, economical and healthy life, and it services domestic safety, control of instruments, controllable energy and health monitoring by using home appliances. Our studies designed the broadband power line communication (BPLC) home controller which could save much cost at a network infrastructure by using the existing power line at home. The BPLC home controllers could control various domestic appliances such as a digital door-lock, a boiler, an oven and etc., because these controllers had various I/O specifications. We selected the Jini technology surrogate architecture as a home network middleware for our system, this technology was designed to access a home network system without a limitation of the devices. And the client application program of the system managed and monitored the BPLC home controller via Web browser. In this paper we implemented the home security system using the single BPLC home controller.
