Energy-efﬁcient hierarchical monitoring is presented on smart house platforms. The rapid expansion of embedded systems requires scalable and portable design interfaces to tackle with the increasing complexity. Hierarchical monitoring is a scalable and generic approach for optimization and diagnostic operations in distributed embedded systems. The paper studies the design of hierarchical montioring on smart house platforms built upon the Zigbee standard of PANs (personal area networks). It presents the functional partition of hierarchical agents in a smart house, and gives a qualitative discussion of the design scalability and dependability, in particular compared to centralized monitoring. In addition, quantitative evaluation of the energy efﬁciency of monitoring communication in a smart house is performed using a PAN simulator with Zigbee routing conﬁguration. We demonstrate that hierarchical monitoring is more energy efﬁcient than centralized monitoring in various scenarios of a domestic environment.
