Zigbee Based Home Automation and Agricultural Monitoring System A mesh networking approach for autonomous and manual system control

Rakesh Kumar Jha


Today’s generation of electronic devices are more enhanced and capable than the previous ones with exciting changes in technology has seen to control a variety of home devices with the help of a home automation system. These devices can include lights, fans, doors, surveillance systems and consumer electronics. However along with the smartness and intuitiveness we want a system which is economic as well as low power consuming. ZigBee technology collects and monitors different types of measurements that reflect energy consumption and environment parameters. This paper details the designing of a protocol to monitor various environmental conditions in a home. We are using advanced technology of Micaz motes (which have their own routing capabilities), NESC language programming and Moteworks (used as a data acquisition platform).
