The Internet of Things (IoT) drives the enhancement within Information and communication technology (ICT). It has been used to improve productivity, safety and quality of life. In recent years, smart home application has been applying the concept of IoT so that the users can remotely monitor their properties through internet network. In this paper, we designed and implemented a light controlling system via wireless sensor network using Arduino board and CC1101-chip, which supports the smart home application security systems. In order to solve the interconnection problem between wireless sensor network and the internet, a small solution for wireless light control system embedded with web server has been designed. The system should be able to convert user’s command into radio frequency and send to specific device linked to wireless sensor network. Overall, the design framework of the system was introduced and analyzed, which include the hardware design and software implementation. The hardware used in this paper includes the Arduino Uno R3, Arduino UNO R3, Arduino Nano, Arduino Ethernet Shield, CC1101-chip of Texas Instruments (TI) and relay. The software implemented is developed based on C++. Test results of this system showed that lights on the end device or node that connect to the wireless sensor network can be controlled by any web browser within local area network (LAN).
