This project forwards the design of home automation using Raspberry pi. Raspberry pi provides the features of a mini computer, additional with its GPIO pins where other components and devices can be connected. GPIO registers of raspberry pi are used for the output purposes. We have design a power strip that can be easily connected to GPIO Pins of the Raspberry pi. The home appliances are connected to the input/output ports of Raspberry pi along with the power strip and their status is passed to the raspberry pi. The android running OS in any phone connected to a network can access the status of the home appliances via an application. It presents the design and implementation of automation system that can monitor and control home appliances via android phone.
This project presents the overall design of Home Automation System (HAS) with wireless system. This system is designed to assist and provide support in order to fulfill the needs of elderly and disabled in home. Also, the smart home concept in the system improves the standard living at home. The switch mode is used to control the home appliances.
The main control system implements wireless technology to provide remote access from smart phone. The design remains the existing electrical switches and provides more safety control on the switches with low voltage activating method. The switches status is synchronized in all the control system whereby every user interface indicates the real time existing switches status. The system intended to control electrical appliances and devices in house with relatively low cost design, user-friendly interface and ease of installation
In This Project, the electrical and home appliances can be controlled using the android mobile phones and Bluetooth Wireless Communication Protocol even if you are out of your house and you forgot to switch off the appliances. Many electrical and home appliances like light, fan, refrigerators etc can be controlled using the android operating system. this can also be implemented at workplaces. Home automation is there side extension of building automation. It is automation of the home,housework or household activity.
