This paper describes more efficient home energy management system to reduce power consumption in home area. We consider the room easily controllable with an IR remote control of a home appliance. The room has power outlets, a light, and a ZigBee hub. The ZigBee hub has an IR code learning function and educates the IR remote control signal of a home appliance connected to the power outlet. Then it can control the power outlets and the light in the room. The ZigBee hubs in each room communicate with the home server and report the power consumption information to the home server. The proposed architecture gives more efficient energy-saving HEMS.
