This paper proposes an integrated device control system called Control Architecture for Networked Devices in Location Environments (CANDLE), which controls devices with Google Maps. Google Maps provides a global map interface and flexible APIs. The main motivation for this study is to provide a search and control system for physically distributed devices using Google Maps. To achieve this, the requirements of the system are (1) to coordinate device information with map information on Google Maps and (2) all distributed information has to be integrated on one interface. Device information is a set of information to control devices on an interface of Google Maps. CANDLE is an integrated device control system using Google Maps designed to meet these requirements. Using CANDLE, a user can control physically distributed devices through a web browser. In CANDLE, all device information is integrated into one map. CANDLE enables device control, searches, and display of information on distributed devices on an interface of Google Maps through a web browser. By using a web browser, a user can control devices from anywhere even if the devices are distributed globally. Thus, CANDLE is quite useful for distributed device control systems such as security, healthcare, and global monitoring systems.
