Smart home systems become an interesting topics in the last few years. Many researchers have been studied some features. Most of smart home system use a centralized architecture know as centralized smart home system (CSHS). The centralizedmechanism is easy to manage and to configure. However, in fault-tolerant systemparadigm it produces a problem. The entire system will fail, if the master station fails.Another problem of CSHS is centralized mechanism gives more data-flow. This condition makes the system has a greater delay time. To solve the problem, we proposea distributed rule execution mechanism (DREM). Compared to the centralized mechanism, the DREM allows a device to provide its service without any commands fromthe master station. In this mechanism, since the information does not need to go tothe master station, the data-flow and the delay-time can be decreased. The experimentresults show that the DREM is able to mask the failure in the master station by directlytransmit the data from trigger device to service device. This mechanism makes the services provision without master station possible. The mathematical analysis also shows that the delay time of the service provision of the DREM is less than the delay time ofCSHS.
