While 'in home' become kind of you're stuck in or more of like inside the house. E.g. "I left my keys in the home" (and you are locked out now; at home however would mean that you went somewhere and forgot them at home); "Where have you been? We waited in the garden for like hours!" - "I was in the home all the time.".

Actually speaking both the phrases - 'I am in my home' and 'I am at my home'. both are correct, butI am at home is more realistic. "Home" means own home and not other's home. Hence, no need to write "I am in my home", but it should be always used while speaking and writing that - "I am at home". read more

Neither is correct as "my" is implied with the word home when one refers to one's own home e.g. I am at home I am at Syed's home/house

"I am at home" is correct. "Home" implies the place where the speaker lives. "I am in my house" is correct as well. "House" is a physical building/structure unlike a home, and can belong to anybody.
