Relatively higher cost, worse extensibility of the monitoring points and weaker mobility are those disadvantages that widely exist in the wire data collection system of the traditional household facilities. This paper introduces a scheme for building a wireless sensor network in a larger scope, utilizing the advantages of ZigBee technology in lower power, lower cost, easier extensibility and convenient installation, to monitor various kinds of information at home. For example, it collects the information of the appliances to the control center (PC) for data processing, and by the 3G communication between PC and smart mobile phones it manages to monitor the appliances by remote control.
