They are equipped with embedded microprocessors, sensors and wireless transceivers, offering limited communication capabilities and providing smart behavior. Sensors are deployed in home appliances, measuring the environmental conditions inside the home environment. Their advanced sensing functionalities and their increasing accuracy enable the development of smart home applications that offer advanced automation. Local device discovery, service description, event-based messaging and caching of the sensory measurements for answering subsequent requests are important issues that need to be considered when attempting to enable a resource constrained devices to the web.
