This paper proposes a new design for the smart home using the wireless sensor network and the biometric technologies. The proposed system employs the biometric in the authentication for home entrance which enhances home security as well as easiness of home entering process. The proposed smart home Wireless Biometric Smart Home (WB-SH) design is one of the few designs or it is the only design that addresses the integration between the wireless sensor network and biometric in building smart homes. The structure of the system is described and the incorporated communications are analyzed, also an estimation for the whole system cost is given which is something lacking in a lot of other smart home designs offers.
