Home security system is needed for occupants' convenience and safety. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of a low cost, low power consumption, and GSM/GPRS (global system for mobile communication /general packet radio service) based wireless home security system. The system is a wireless home network which contains a GSM/GPRS gateway and three kinds of wireless security sensor nodes that are door security nodes, infrared security nodes and fire alarm nodes. The nodes are easy installing. The system can response rapidly to alarm incidents and has a friendly user interface including a LCD (liquid crystal display) and a capacitive sensor keyboard. The wireless communication protocol between the gateway and the nodes is also suitable for other home appliances. Furthermore, some methods are taken to ensure the security of system information.
