IOT Home Automation:
This IOT Home Automation project is useful in controlling the home appliances. Home automation is the process of controlling home appliances automatically using various control system techniques. It controls electrical and electronic appliances in the home such as fan, lights, outdoor lights, fire alarm, kitchen timer, etc.
IOT Home Automation Project with different techniques:
There are various techniques to control home appliances such as IOT based home appliances over the cloud, home automation under WiFi through android apps from any smartphone, Arduino based home automation, home automation by android application based remote control, home automation using digital control, RF based home automation system and touch screen based home automation. IOT or internet of things is an upcoming technology that allows us to control hardware devices through the internet. Here we propose to use IOT home automation project in order to control home appliances, thus automating modern homes through the internet.
Working of this project:
This system uses three loads to demonstrate as house lighting and a fan. Our user friendly interface allows a user to easily control these home appliances through the internet. For this system we use an AVR family microcontroller. This microcontroller is interfaced with a wifi modem to get user commands over the internet. Also we have an LCD display to display system status. Relays are used to switch loads. The entire system is powered by a 12 V transformer. After receiving user commands over the internet, microcontroller processes these instructions to operate these loads accordingly and display the system status on an LCD display.
Required Components & Materials
The essential components and materials for home automation are Wi-Fi module, Opto-coupler, TRIAC, resistors, capacitors, diode, regulator, loads (home appliances). There are various eCommerce websites that are providing facility to purchase all the required components online.
