Conclusions

This thesis presented Home Manager, a home automation centralized applica- tion focused on power saving and power overload protection; ZigApi, a software framework aimed at providing application abstraction for ZigBee networks; and a set of testing tools, called virtual devices. Through Home Manager, the user can control and operate on household appliances, and exploit some automa- tic power management features. Home Manager offers a simple and intutive graphical interface.

The future development of Home Manager can include the following points.

• Other features of automatic power management, for example an user or a supplier can make aware the Home Manager about the effective power supply agreement. Home Manager can take automatic solutions in order to avoid breaches of the contract.

• Further enhancements in Home Manager interface, for example a remote web interface can be provided. In this way, the Home Manager functio- nalities can be available for laptops or smart phones equipped with an Internet connection. Obviously this feature introduces some issues about security and privacy that must be faced.

• A set of plug-ins, developed by different vendors, can extend Home Mana- ger’s functionalities. The set of managed smart devices can be extended too. In this way, Home Manager can support virtually every kind of ZigBee device and every kind of manual or automatic functionality.
