1. Introduction

   Home network interconnects a number of home devices with wireline or
   wireless access technology. Home network may include a diverse range
   of devices, e.g. multimedia devices, smart appliances, laptops,
   network gateways. Therefore it is necessary to design a management
   system for the home network to enable remote control, energy
   management and data sharing.
