The impact of home automation on domestic lifestyles is incredible as it was before on industry and its benefits will be accessible to all sectors of society. With the help of home automation, it is possible to control dozens of domestic equipment and appliances will include security, heating, lighting, cooking, washing appliances, energy management, audio and video systems as well as a number of new appliances such as health monitoring, home publishing. This paper presents a design and prototype implementation of new home automation system that can be controlled by radio frequency (RF) and can be able to communicate with any household appliance as well as robot in the range between of 10 and 15 m. Frequency of 433 MHz is used to communicate with transmitter and receiver to run all type of applications both in ac and dc. We are facing some challenges in section A and to overcome those challenges, we also proposed an intelligent, multi nodal and secured home automation system described in section B and show the comparison between RF based wireless home automation and intelligent multi nodal secured home automation.
