Home automation is used to control and monitor home appliances, lighting, audio or video devices, etc. The demand for home monitoring systems to efficiently monitor the home appliances is constantly increasing and has a promising market trend in the near future. Present day home automation systems have limitations in programmability and customization. But when a functional block of home monitoring unit is made modular, it becomes versatile and can intelligently adapt to the required task assigned by the user. In this paper, we have built and implemented a system which would collect data from nodes that functions on a fault-proof Wi-Fi based self-stabilizing, ad-hoc mesh network based on painless Mesh. This has the potential to perform tasks like device status output, device control, and device automation. By establishing the client nodes in a mesh network, we will be able to connect the devices together and perform data acquisition through a server and transmit the data into a cloud platform through a gateway, and successfully notify the user through applets and a web-based GUI.
