Many kinds of electrical devices are available at home and most of them are equipped with micro computers. These devices have been autonomously controlled. According to the highly advanced computer network technology, these devices are connected to a computer network. Here, these are controlled and managed through the network for sup porting network services efficiently. Such kind of computer networks are named home networks. For providing ser vices to home network users, it is critical to support the lo cation information service, that is, the location of the users are required to be recognized by the system in real-time manner. This paper proposes a novel location information system for home networks by using speaker recognition, wireless LAN protocol, network management technique in TCP/IP networks.
