The design, development and commercial implementation of a Smart Home System (BestariHome) will be described. Current trends, key issues and standards are also discussed in detail. Finally, based on our broad experience from design to implementation some guidelines for smart home system designers and developers are discussed. 1. Introduction Today, you can easily control your home’s mechanical systems and appliances over your cellular phone or Internet, and the lighting in your home can be set to save your money when you leave the room. The Internet provides even more incredible access to information and services. The Internet will become common and similar to the use of water, electricity and gas.
