Supervised by Omer F Rana; Moderated by Hantao Liu

This project looks at implementing a wireless sensor network within rented accommodation to investigate whether it can benefit both the housing association and the tenants of the building. It gives an overview of wireless sensor networks and their associated technologies before going into detail about the Libelium Waspmote and how this can be programmed and used with Zigbee to act as sensor nodes connecting to a Libelium Meshlium gateway. This report found that a Libelium wireless sensor network could be set up in rented accommodation to yield useful results and it sets the path for further advances in the area.
