Forums : Choice of devices for home automation
This page last changed on Sep 09, 2009 by sid.
I am a graduate student at carnegie mellon currently working on secure home networks for my master's thesis. I need to design a centrally managed home network as a first step for my research work. I have looked up a lot of forums and I am confused by the choices I have for designing a smart home. What I want to know is that which technology is the most convenient to program? I know there are API's for x10 devices and I have also seen the developers manual for INSTEON and that does not look friendly at all. What about Zigbee/Z Wave ? Are there enough such devices around? Are they open? I just need some suggestions on what would be the best choice for implementing a smart home.
