EasyHome consists of a hub that will control all the devices, a user interface, internet cloud and peripheral devices. With EasyHome mobile and web application the user will be able to check the status of appliances with voice input. Through API commands, the hub queries the data from the switches and sensors attached to the appliances, and format that information appropriately for use on the Internet cloud. Since the ZigBee standard is the one of the most common technologies used in wireless automation, we will use ZigBee as the primary wireless network for our smart devices.Smart sensors and switches will be embedded into existing ordinary appliances to sense the state of the device. First peripheral device designed as a part of EasyHome solution is an attachment to normal stovetop. This device will monitor temperature of the burners and deliver a voice notification when the user forgets to turn off the burner. The second peripheral device will be a system for detecting the status of door lock. The user will use the phone or web application to monitor and control door locking. EasyHome also includes a smart device to measure body temperature using audio input and output. In addition to above mentioned devices our phone application will have functionality for identifying colours of clothes.
