A home control system is presented, based on standard IP
LAN techniques. The system features large flexibility,
dynamic reconfigurability, fault-tolerance and low costs.
An integrated hardware/software framework has been
conceived, which support device interoperability,
complex task management and graceful degradation under
fault conditions. The system also allows for remote
monitoring and control. A test site is operating, and
allows for validation of the proposed approach.
