Although certainly more energy efficient modes supported devices, or could be completely separated from the mains, this is the growing number of devices in households no longer practical. Using algorithms for activity recognition and a central control logic can be added at no direct human interaction in the respective energy-efficient operating mode, and if possible completely disconnected from the mains. There were body-worn acceleration sensors used in an RF-based localization system and a clock with integrated sensor platform for detection of trouble-free operations. A rule-based, modular control application generates UPnP control commands. In addition to developing a comprehensive empirical study of a demonstrator in 15 households was conducted with the functionality of the method was proved.
