Home Automation refers to the branch of automation that deals with the methods dedicated to the reduction of human efforts and involvement in achieving tasks. Advancement in technologies have made homes more convenient, efficient and even more secure. Introducing the Raspberry Pi to the world of home automation provides numerous customizations to turn a regular home into a smart home. Raspberry Pi provides a low cost platform for interconnecting electrical/electronic devices in home via the internet network. The main objective of this project work is to design a smart home which can be controlled and monitored by the Raspberry Pi via the Internet of Things (IoT). This project deals with the wide range connectivity and energy efficient control of the home appliances in a user friendly manner. These features of connectivity, scalability, power saving can be achieved by the use of Raspberry Pi, which acts as an interface between the hardware and the software of the entire system. Installing Raspbian Operating System (OS), a code can be developed for loads to ON and OFF separately by using python programming language. An android mobile application (app) is used where we can be able to see the status of appliances virtually and control them by changing the buttons provided in that app.
