Abstract
This article presents an integrated access control and lighting configuration system for smart buildings. The system uses two-factor authentication, one based on face recognition and other on RFID TAG, and identifies the user inside a room and performs an automatic lighting configuration based on user’s behavior. The communication among the devices is performed by Radio Frequency using the low to medium frequency spectrum (LMRF), without providing direct Internet access, and, hence, avoiding known Internet security issues. This system can be easily deployed on meeting rooms or offices in business or government buildings. Through the evaluations we observe an acceptable processing execution time, an acceptable communication time and the robustness of the system.
