SHAF: Framework for Smart Home Sensing and Actuation

Home automation uses different types of network protocols such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and ZigBee. However, existing home equipment often requires network communication enabled power plugs or devices that has a unique communication protocol specified by the company. Although these equipment have standard communication capability, each device is limited to communicate within a same network protocol enabled devices. In order to solve this issue between various network protocols in smart homes, we present Smart Home Automation Framework (SHAF). In this paper, we present SHAF, discuss implementation details of our framework, and provide a demonstration with an example of how the overall system performs in a real-world smart home environment.
