ARDUINO BASED SMART HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEM
Smart home Automation technology, lifetime is getting easier and simpler on all side in life. In the world, automatically systems are being chosen over the manual system. With the fast growth in the number of users of the internet through the past decade, the Internet has become a part and section of human life. In this study, a remotely controlled smart home automation system, for monitoring and controlling the temperature degree, humidity percentage, gas leakage, fires, and rain in the house, was developed. This system can also control the light by using motion and light sensors inside and outside the home. The developed system consists of two parts: hardware and software. The hardware consists of many units such as smartphones, personal computers, Arduino Mega, Ethernet shield and relay board, temperature and humidity, gas, motion, flame, light and rain sensors, a buzzer and fire alarm. Arduino Mega used as the Microcontroller is the primary hardware unit connected with an Ethernet Shield responsible for sending and receiving directives and status via the internet. The software is the second part of this system; it is Arduino IDE’s code used to design web browser page. The web browser page connected to hardware devices and sensors through Ethernet shield. Moreover, it works to control and monitor this system from the web page and smartphone. Finally, this system uses an internet network for communication and alerts due to its low cost and large area coverage and can control every device via the web browser and Android application anywhere and anytime. Moreover, the gas, flame, light, temperature, humidity and rain sensors work correctly with excellent results.
