Internet of things(IoT) is evolving to a vast extent. It involves collaboration of different devices and ultimately achieving efficient home automation as one application. Some of the key challenges in adopting IoT for mainstream life style varies from device diversity, security, connected services of IoT devices to add newer use case value proposition. This paper proposes a Client-Server service and device friendly approach for Home automation. A typical home automation workflow consists of 4 stages. Understanding the user environment by sensing, reporting the events to a centralized entity, centralized entity analyses and triggers the workflow, workflow will execute and update user by any interactive channels or even exercise over a home device (actuating). The physical condition of the device can also be altered based on the user request. The Home automation can be made efficient by including security factor by alerting user about an unknown person in the house. This IoT project implements a Client-Server based home automation with intruder alert to the user mobile phone. The user can also retrieve the image of the person entered in to the home. © 2017 IEEE.
