In this paper, an ultra-light low-power and unique smart automation system has been implemented which interfaces the internet communication protocols like Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) through an embedded Linux platform to obtain home automation. It has improved upon the preexisting work by removing MOM type middleware, providing efficient M2M communication by implementing a direct virtual link between the transport layer of the two communicating devices. This smart automation system is ultra-low powered and improves the efficiency and throughput involved in communication. An embedded Linux platform, connected to the Internet through its Ethernet port, is used for the demonstration of this smart automation system. A Web portal interface is used to give commands and receive updates about the result of automation.
