As home automation systems becoming more common, we could experience the presence of a wide variety of systems. The goal of this thesis is to lay the basis for a home automation system, that controls all emerging tasks as a whole. However a divided intelligence appears in a form of implementing the different automation areas as different subsystems. Take the example of heating, irrigation or security technology, which subsystems could cooperate perfectly with each other.
The thesis contains the design and creation of the main control module of a heating control system. The module is a microcontroller based system, which communicates with other modules of the system through wireless data transfer and also connects to the internet using Wi-Fi.
Setting, scheduling and modifying the control tasks are easy through a web based, ergonomic user interface even from mobile devices.
The communication standard have to be ready to make a reliable link between a high diversity of devices and their functions (e.g. boilers, radiator valve controllers, airconditiners).
