Abstract (Summary)

The two main purposes of developing a Home Control Networking protocol are to offer indoor lifestyle sophistication and for the security of our residences. There are numerous protocols based on ZigBee, Z-Wave, Wavenis, X10 and Insteon technologies. These technologies do have good indoor lifestyle sophistication features. Insteon provides wide range of products in this aspect and is the latest and improved version. But the existing Insteon protocol is functional in only smaller Power Line Communication networks. There will be demand for the implementation of Insteon home control networking protocol in larger residential areas and in industrial areas due to its steady growth and popularity. Implementing the existing protocol in larger networks is infeasible because of data collision due to flooding. Therefore, there is a need to redefine and expand the protocol, such that the network could accommodate many devices and increase the size of the network. To achieve the same gradient based routing is implemented that helps to choose a particular path to reach a particular end device. This eventually reduces flooding and useful data packets can be saved from collision. After implementation of gradient based protocol, collision has reduced by 56.63%, delay decreased by 65% and throughput increased by 105.6%.
