Internet of Things is the network of physically connected devices, which enables these devices to communicate with real world appliances. Home Automation is a beneficial technology for automatically controlling the activities done at home. The different technologies like Bluetooth, WIFI and Zigbee are used to implement the Home Automation System (HAS) where various devices like smart phone, tablet and laptops are used for controlling various household appliances. In this paper we evaluated the capabilities and behaviours of the WSN technology on home automation systems mainly regarding the power consumption and also the advantages of integrating solar panel to the system to enhance the power consumption ratio.
