Urban Rotar (2010) Driver for the house automation system Adhoco. EngD thesis.
A constant need for a better life has in the past few years led to a rapid development of home automation. One of the most fundamental problems associated with home automation is the lack of flexibility and compatibility of these systems. The Adhoco system driver which is described in this thesis makes it possible to avoid the use of the Adhoco control unit and allows users to control the system using a non-dedicated application. Therefore we can use the Adhoco system in connection with other similar systems for home automation and consequently expand their functionality. In the thesis basics of home automation and possibilities of its application are described, exposing problems and limitations of these systems and their future development. Furtheron a detailed description of the Zigbee protocol on which the Adhoco network operates is given. The focus is mostly on the development of the driver and on the comparison of the Adhoco system with some similar products. The Adhoco system is suitable for smaller buildings such as houses and flats with finished electrical installation. The driver can, in connection with control application, successfully replace the Adhoco control unit. It enables users to have complete control over the Adhoco system. However, it does not allow configuration of the system.
