The purpose of this paper is to design an automation system that is used to switch ON, OFF and get to know status of the home appliances by using computer using Zigbee wireless technology. ZigBee is a new technology, whose goal is to eliminate wired connections between electrical appliances and computer. Instead of connecting with wires, every electrical appliance has small zigbee. The home appliances are connected to the ports of the microcontroller board and their status are passed to the home server. The combination of NetBeans and EmbeddedC is used for monitoring and controlling software. The home Appliances can be monitored and accessed remotely by user via SMS or EMAIL where GSM Modem comes into use. Multi-vendor appliances can be added to the system with no major changes and hence system is scalable. Password protection is one of the functionality of the system so that unauthorized user can be denied from accessing home appliances. Another important feature is the security system that will continuously monitor the status of home appliances and take adequate actions if required.
