© 2022 IEEE.Home automation and video surveillance systems are constantly undergoing changes due to advances in electronics and communications. Starting with telephone-controlled home appliances and a simple camera-based system, home automation and video surveillance have now entered the IoT (Internet of Things) and IoE (Internet of Everything) era, where every device integrated smart are connected to worldwide network and controlled abroad. Home automation makes life easier by providing control of all home appliances at one point, which is basically by a smartphone. The need for surveillance is rapidly increasing in domestic and commercial applications due to its low cost and ease of deployment. To ensure the security of video surveillance of personal homes and small businesses, people resort to third-party organizations with expensive equipment. In turn, the solution for providing a video surveillance security system based on a Rasp berry Pi single-board computer using HomeAssistant software is more profitable and easier to implement. The choice fell on the HomeAssistant software, since HomeAssistant is an open source application and does not require additional costs. This article analyzes how home automation and video surveillance systems have been modified and implemented. For the review, the Home Assistant smart home platform was implemented with the introduction of a video surveillance system.
