Lighting control presents a small part of home automation control systems. The main goal of home automation systems is to enable home devices to communicate with each other and to do some actions which are set by users. To make a home autonomous, it is necessary to obtain, mount and install different pieces of hardware, which often includes lot of wiring and non-uniform standards. In this paper, the authors presented the wireless home lighting control system that uses ZigBee protocol standard. TV sets, set-top boxes, multimedia players etc. are all embedded systems controlled by built-in processors.
