The intention of the GHowSA system is the creation of a localised sensorweb to log sensor information on phenomenon of interest in the home environment.
Rather than produce an integrated all encompassing single piece of software/hardware it was decided to rather develop separate yet integrated systems to
capture data, review the data, and finally, take action in response to the data ie Measurement - Review - Control.
Whilst the initial development is built arround the Maxim one-wire method the system is flexible enough to accommodate alternate sytems
such as X10, or wireless technologies such as zigbee.
