In Proceeding of DA/DSM '96, Vienna, Austria, pp. 675 - 686.
Parallel to the rapid development of home automation equipment, we witness
the so called information revolution, where Internet and other global networks
are growing with an ever increasing pace. In order to make home automation
economically feasible, we believe it to be vital to take advantage of the
progress in modern information technology, such as the World-Wide Web and
Virtual Reality technology.
In this paper we describe how standard tools, normally with free client
software, can be used to create a very powerful and intuitive interface
to an automated household. Our implementation makes it possible to control
and supervise the household from anywhere in the world, e.g. from inside
the house or from another continent.
