Intelligent home automation has become more popular over the decade. Integration of automation in a home security, enhances its self-dependability. An intelligent home, integrated with various smart system modules can provide convenient and safe environment for the inhabitants and home appliances which can be easily controlled and monitored even from a remote distance. In this paper an intelligent home automation and environmental solution is proposed along with the architecture of integrated sensor modules. This proposed system is embedded with electronic lock driven with password verification and biometric finger print scanner. This sensing tools ensure the system to prevent unauthorized access.  It is comprised with video recording of unauthorized person or intruder moving around the home or office premises. Moreover, PIR motion sensor, IR sensors would also work as safeguard by helping to capture image and Skype video calling from the inside of home or office. User will also be able to monitor the present condition of the home or office by using Facebook post of image and message status. The implemented system as a prototype for the justification and attestation of the proposals has been tested successfully. The observed data ensures that the system is working efficiently.
