Abstract

This project involves the design and implementation of a Smart Home system using IoT solutions. Three types of sensors, namely an occupancy sensor, a light sensor and a temperature sensor, along with a security camera are used and incorporated with a microcontroller in a master/slave architecture via Zigbee, a short-range network communication. The data collected from these sensors is transmitted to a cloud-based platform through Wi-Fi for analyzing and downloading to personal smartphones via a designated user interface. The entire system can be controlled both by users’ smartphones and by personal computers.
