Home Automation Environments are characterized by the integration of electronic devices as well asby the performance of communication and control systems. Environment infrastructure has to meetseveral requirements including Quality of Service (QoS), safety, security, and energy saving.However, Home Automation deals with complex environments, so that advanced data managementsystems are required to meet the above constraints. Fuzzy Logic based techniques can be successfulused to improve system performance management. This work proposes and describes the use andapplication of fuzzy rules on a two-tiered architecture integrating a biometric authentication moduleand communication real-time constraints. The goal is to combine the advantages of wired andwireless networks as well as the biometric recognition accuracy to increase the flexibility and theperformance of the proposed deadline oriented architecture. The experimental results of the userauthentication module, the energy consumption module and the scheduling module for real-timemobile communication are also outlined.
