Smart Home Case Study

2013-07-27 by tamberg

In his bachelor thesis for FHNW, Dominik Vonlanthen investigates how remote access to Internet-connected smart homes enables responding to weather events provided by 3rd party cloud services.

The proposed architecture is based on the Aizo digitalSTROM home automation system. The YalerTunnel command line tool was used to enable secure access to the dSS, an in-house embedded Linux server. The digitalSTROM Hub, acting as glue logic in the cloud, gets weather events from MeteoSchweiz, processes them, and if necessary alarms individual homes via the Yaler relay.
