Abstract: 

Conventional sensing methodologies for smart home are known to be labor-intensive and complicated for practical deployment. Thus, researchers are resorting to alternative sensing mechanisms. Wi-Fi is one of the key technologies that enable connectivity for smart home services. Apart from its primary use for communication, Wi-Fi signal has now been widely leveraged for various sensing tasks, such as gesture recognition and fall detection, due to its sensitivity to environmental dynamics. Building smart home based on Wi-Fi sensing is cost-effective, non-invasive, and enjoys convenient deployment. In this paper, we survey the recent advances in the smart home systems based on the Wi-Fi sensing, mainly in such areas as health monitoring, gesture recognition, contextual information acquisition, and authentication.
