A SIP-Based Home Gateway for Domotics Systems: From the Architecture to the Prototype
The integration of the various home devices into a single, multi-service, and user-friendly platform is still an area of active research. In this scenario, we propose a domotics framework based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and on a SIP-based Home Gateway (SHG). The SHG retains the compatibility with the existing SIP infrastructure, allowing the user to control all domotics devices through his usual SIP client. Particular attention has been paid to the usability and scalability of the system, which brought us to define a functional addressing and control paradigm. A working prototype of the SHG and a customized SIP event package have been used to provide a proof-of-concept of our architecture, in which the SHG has been interfaced with ZigBee and Bluetooth networks.
