Design of Smart Home System Based on ZigBee Technology and R&D for Application
Abstract: In this paper, a smart home system based on ZigBee technology is designed. The system includes home network, home server and mobile terminal. The program is highly scalable and cost-effective. This paper developed the home server-side application based on MFC technology and the mobile terminal application. The mobile client can remotely control home devices and query the running state, electric energy information and historical data of home devices. At the same time, the home server-side application can store electric energy information and electricity consumption of home devices. Combined with household distributed photovoltaic generation system, the system can be applied to home energy management system. Through running tests and application, the results show that the system has realized basic functions of smart home and achieved the desired design goals.
