This work intends to demonstrate the use of IEEE 802.15.4, a low-rate spread spectrum wireless network protocol, to provide real time environmental sensoring information to the Home Sapiens -a smart home simulator [1]. IEEE 802.15.4 focuses on enabling pervasive wireless sensor networks for residential, commercial and industrial applications. The standard is characterized by maintaining a high level of simplicity, low cost and low power, with high immunity at the ISM band due to its spread
