Our project aims at building Home Automation system based on the availability of smart home network for devices to communicate. In this system we will monitor the energy consumption of appliances such as fan and light between two buildings and a comparison is performed between these two wherein the output is displayed using Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineer‟s Workbench (LabVIEW) software. The occupancy level is checked using IR sensor and the devices are automatically switched off in the absence of any human presence. The Energy consumption of each device can be measured using Energy Measurement module. In case of high consumption of energy by devices, they will be controlled using specific circuits. Hence the energy conservation is accomplished by efficient use of energy and reducing the wastage of electricity.

Abstract


Our project aims at building Home Automation system based on the availability of smart home network for devices to communicate. In this system we will monitor the energy consumption of appliances such as fan and light between two buildings and a comparison is performed between these two wherein the output is displayed using Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineer‟s Workbench (LabVIEW) software. The occupancy level is checked using IR sensor and the devices are automatically switched off in the absence of any human presence. The Energy consumption of each device can be measured using Energy Measurement module. In case of high consumption of energy by devices, they will be controlled using specific circuits. Hence the energy conservation is accomplished by efficient use of energy and reducing the wastage of electricity.
