It is Recommended To Extent Greetings of Peace Upon Entering One's Home
If one's house is empty, some from the people of knowledge - from the Companions (radiya Allaahu 'anhum) and others - have ruled that it is recommended for a man to greet himself upon entering. 'Abdullaah Ibn 'Umar (radiya Allaahu 'anh) said, "If one enters an uninhabited (or empty) house, then let him say, 'As-Salaamu 'Alaina Wa.'Alaa 'Ibaadullahis-Saaliheen (Peace be upon us and upon Allâh's righteous slaves).'"  And the same is related from Mujaahid and others. Ibn Hajr said, "The order to spread greetings of peace embraces greetings one's own self when one enters a place in which there is no one, for Allâh (subhaanahu wa ta'aala) said,
فَإِذَا دَخَلْتُم بُيُوتًا فَسَلِّمُوا عَلَى أَنفُسِكُمْ
"But when you enter the houses, greet one another (the literal translation is, 'greet yourselves').." (Qur'an 24:61)
If you enter your home and your family is inside, then it is recommended for you to greet them as well. Abu Az-Zubair related that he heard Jaabir (radiya Allaahu 'anh) say, "When you enter upon your family, then greet them 'with a greeting from Allâh, blessed and good.'"  It is not, however, compulsory to give greetings of peace when you enter your home. Ibn Juraij once asked 'Ataa, "When I leave and enter again, is it compulsory for me to greet them?" Ge answered, "No, and it being compulsory is not related from anyone; nonetheless, doing so is more beloved to me, and I do not forsake doing so except on occasions in which I forget." After becoming aware of the inherent virtues of this practise, a Muslim should not abonden it. One of the virtues or rewards of this practise is mentioned in the following Hadeeth, Abu Umaamah (radiya Allaahu 'anh) related that the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said,
"Each of [the following] three has a guarantee with Allâh - that if he lives, he is taken care of , and if he dies, he will enter Paradise: one who enters his house with 'Salaam' har a guarantee with Allâh 'Azza Wa-Jall (The Most Mighty and Exalted); one who goes out to the Masjid has a guarantee with Allâh; and one who geos out in the way of Allâh has a guarantee with Allâh." 
 Related by Abu Daawood (17), and the wording mentioned here is from his narration of the Hadeeth. Al-Albaanee said, "Saheeh". And about one of its chains, Ibn Muflaih said, "Its chain is good." The following compiler related it as well: Ahmed (18555), An-Nassaaee (38), Ibn Maajah (350), and Ad-Daarimee (2641)
 Al-Adab Al-Mufrad, by Al-Bukhaaree (1055). Ibn Hajr ruled that its chain is Hasan (Fathul-Baaree 11/22). And in Saheeh Al-Adab Al-Mufrad, Al-Albaanee also ruled that its chain is Hasan.
 Al-Adab Al-Mufrad (1095). Al-Albaanee said, "Its chain is Saheeh."
 Al-Adab Al-Mufrad (1094). Al-Albaanee said, "Saheeh."
