Formatted abstract

Building automated technology is rapidly developing towards a more reliable communication systems, devices that control electronic equipment. Power Line communication has been one of the dreams of the electronics industry, especially for building automation. Now with the popularity of the internet, Home Automation might now see the light of the mass consumers.

The Internet Power Line Adapter is a power measuring device designed to measure the power consumption of any appliance attached to it and communicate this information across a power line network. No longer is there a need to have messy rewiring of houses, simply plugging the adapter into the wall is all that is required. Appliances can now be told to turn off during high rate period and take advantage of low rate period, it can even be activated remotely from via the internet.

Developed and evaluated, the system proved to be an effective communication device with only some problems in the phase variance of power mains. Overall the Power Lines proved to be a good medium for the Automation industry, combine this with the vast possibilities of the World Wide Web the Internet Power Line Adapter provides a good base for the field of Home Automation.
