Home Automation is a major commercial field in modern days, many manufacturers have realised that fact and started to produce different types of solutions targeted at that market. The paper will present a user friendly smart home infrastructure that offers the base platform for modular wireless nodes (utilising ZigBee technology integrated with the Arduino microcontroller board) which can collect data, send information and control almost any aspect of the house (given that a proper interface is established), as well as the ability to access those nodes and their information through a cross-platform graphical user interface (a combination of Java and MySQL database). The system will be referred to as “BeeHouse” in this paper. This paper will propose a possible solution for a wireless modular home automation system that is smart, user friendly and easy to setup. This paper is part of the thesis of a final year project in Bachelors of Engineering (Computer Systems Engineering).
