An intelligent agent which is a software component for the efficient home network system is proposed in this paper. The agent consists of six modules such as the Agent Manager, the Data Collector, the Execution Controller, the Data Storage, the Data Queue and the User Interface. The Agent Manager manages the tasks of modules, and the Data Collector collects the data from home appliances through the RFID readers. The Execution Controller determines the operations of home appliances according to the conditions of the home environment and transfers the operations to the appliances through the RFID readers. Moreover, the Data Storage keeps the data which is necessary for the operations of the agent, and the Data Queue temporarily stores the data which is collected from home appliances. Lastly, the User Interface provides the graphical user interface in which an individual can directly control and monitor the home network. The proposed intelligent agent autonomously learns the circumstances of a home network by analyzing the data about the state of home appliances, and provides the best suited environment to the user. Therefore, the user can live in an optimal home environment without effort if he/she performs home networking through the agent.
