Abstract    Today due to the importance and necessity of implementing security systems in homes and other buildings, systems with higher certainty, lower cost and with sensor fusion methods are more attractive, as an applicable and high performance methods for the researchers. In this paper, the application of Dempster-Shafer evidential theory and also the newer, more general one Dezert-Smarandache theory for implementing as a home security system and also using sensor data fusion have been considered. The benefits of multisensor fusion with direct connection to the control unit, in comparison with the traditional single sensor systems, have been shown.
