In order to make the smart home more autonomous, responsive to needs of inhabitants and allows energy saving; we propose architecture for self-configuring of household appliances. This architecture will be used to develop a home automation system called PBHAS (Policy-Based Home Automation System). In this architecture, we adopt the policy-based management approach for the home automation. Therefore, we propose a PDP-PRF (Policy Decision Point usage for profile) for the management of the home, a LPDP-PRF (Local Policy Decision Point usage for profile) for the management of each room, a PEP-PRF (Policy Enforcement Point usage for profile) for the management of each household appliance, a database called PB-PRF (Policy Database usage for profile) to store needed information to manage the home and, finally, COPS-PRF (Common Open Policy Service usage for profile), to ensure communication between the PDP-PRF and LPDP-PRFs.
