dc.description.abstractHousehold appliances are being equipped with embedded micro-controllers and wireless transceivers, offering smart behavior. These augmented appliances form wireless networks and transform residential areas into smart homes. Advancements such as the effective penetration of the Internet in embedded computing and the promising practice of the Web of Things, allow the realization of Web-oriented smart homes. In a previous work, we developed a Web-based application framework for smart homes, supporting concurrent interaction from multiple family members. In this paper, we improve the functionality of our system by including a 6LoWPAN-based wireless sensor network inside the home environment, addressing issues such as device discovery and service description. Web techniques such as HTTP caching and push messaging, facilitate the efficient operation of a fully Web-based smart home. Through a technical evaluation, we show the benefits of directly Web-enabling embedded sensors in terms of performance and energy conservation. The development of a Web-based graphical application abstracts home automation procedure for typical residents. © 2011 IEEE.en
