Corcoran, P. M., & Desbonnet, J. (1997). "Browser-Style Interfaces to a Home Automation Network". "IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics", Vol. 43(No. 4), pp. 1063-1069
The design and implementation of a browser-style interface to a home automation network is described. The interface supports browsing and navigation of network devices and context structures and the user can interact with individual devices on the network, and access and control context and object structures within these devices. The interface can be used to access a local home automation network from a standard desktop PC, or from a TV/set-top box system with built-in interface hardware. Furthermore, as the interface is implemented using conventional Internet and home network technology it can provide access and control services to the home network from any computer with an Internet connection.
