Contributed Paper Manuscript received June 23, 2009 0098 3063/09/$20.00 © 2009 IEEE Analysis of Remote Control Techniques Employed in Home Automation and Security Systems K. Balasubramanian and A. Cellatoglu Abstract — Remote control of home appliances and remote alerting on fire detection and intruder detection in home are essential aspects of home automation and home security systems. Most commonly used communication tools such as cellular phones, landline telephone and email are considered for remote control of appliances by proposing efficient structures. All these control schemes are analysed for their performances suiting modern home automation and security demands. Furthermore, with the installation of sensitive fire detector and intruder detector in home, automatic triggering of a unit sending recorded message converted into email is presented. This aspect strengthens further the security concerns of the home. Index Terms Email alerting, Interactive control, SMS control, sensitive fire detector I. INTRODUCTION In recent times, home automation efforts are being exercised intensively as to setup standards for building efficient smart home[1-4] suited to custom and regional requirements. Remote control of appliances is an important aspect to be considered for implementing home automation and home security systems. When the resident is away from home, for security purposes, it may be required for him to switch ON certain lamps as to give a feeling to others that the resident is inside home. Also, when the resident is away for a long time, before reentering his home he would like to switch ON his AC and perhaps his refrigerator. Being away from home such control operations are to be executed with remote control facilities employing commonly available public communication tools. Furthermore, in home security aspects, any hazardous fire accident that might occur in home while the resident being away need be alerted for taking rescuing measures. An automated smart home[5] possesses facilities such as i . Local control of appliances situated in different living rooms of the flat by the resident inside the home ii . Remote control of appliances given by telephone iii. Admitting the visitors to enter into home after video and audio monitoring iv . Home assistant software that brings the daily activities to be performed, to the monitor screen as to alert the resident for facing the events of the day.
