INTRODUCTION

Home area networks (HANs) facilitate communication among appliances, home systems, entertainment products, and information devices in a home so that they can work cooperatively and share information. A device connected to an HAN gains the capabilities of other networked devices, and as a result the device can provide a service or function that it would have otherwise been incapable of providing alone (CEA, 2004). Several factors are pushing for the development and adoption of HANs. These include the advancement in telecommunications technologies, the wide proliferation of personal computers, the decreasing costs of smart devices that allow users to control and monitor events in consumer-based appliances, and consumer ...
