Abstract—This paper presents the design and prototype of a home automation framework based on concepts underlying a popular web service called IFTTT. Our study has revealed several interesting concepts which can be expressed as role/application/security models. Adapting these models for the domain of home automation systems, a multi-tier software framework is proposed for automating home activities according to the key concept “IF-This-Then-That”. Our framework differs from existing frameworks according to the integration of a simplified core script and a collection of trigger/action scripts. The prototype phase has been carried on the Google App Engine platform, a Raspberry Pi board, and Arduino boards as I/O units.

Index Terms—Home automation, software framework, open source, raspberry Pi.
