Transcript of Home Automation System

Lighting Control System
2000 - 2001:
These projects were finished , but the importance of
these projects is still enormous.

In 2001:
The Van Berlos employ staff build The first Smartest Home
of the Netherlands and the home has already attracted
many thousands of visitors

Nowadays :
The dream comes true and all important devices and appliances can be interconnected and it is possible to control them all with accessible user interface ( Mobile, Keypad, etc ... ) that make everyday activities easier and lower dependence on other persons.

History of Smart Homes :
In 1991
: The field of ‘ gerontechnology ’ was strongly emerging, which is
technology aimed at making the lives of older people easier and
more comfortable.

In 1998
: Ad van Berlo and his wife Corien van Berlo,
execute projects and
start experiments to setup
Smart Homes together.

In 1999:
Hollywood released "Smart House" which was a comical depiction
of a family that lived in a house of the future. Other science fiction
films released years before "Smart House" Very few people who
saw these films believed that the prediction of smart homes would
ever reach fruition.

- Lighting control system is applied either as on/off
or Dimming Circuits.

1. On/Off Circuits

2. Dimming Circuits


- maximize the energy savings from the lighting system.

- Life of lamps are extended due to reduced run-time
which reduces maintenance time and cost.

- Improves employees' satisfaction and productivity by
providing appropriate lighting levels.
- They allow you to lower or raise light levels so that you
can use the amount of light
- Energy Saving
- Increase the design flexibility
- Reduce lamp replacement
- Reduce costs

- More expensive
- More complicated
Safety Control System
- Earthquakes safety

- Fire and smoke safety

- Water leakage safety

- To turn on the alarm system when earthquake
has been detected
Sensitive alarm will be used to detect smoking in areas where it's fixed such as kitchens .
It detects if there were a fire or smoke it lets a holes of water open, calling 911 to get a help and alarm you over your smartphone.

- Early fire detection in many areas
- Easy technology

- dead batteries steam maybe deceptive
- limited technology

To take specific actions when detect water leakage such as :
- Turn off the water source valve
- Turn on the alarm system
- Send an alarm message
Security Control System
Home Security Systems are more important than ever before. Crime is on the rise in many areas of the country -With Smart System, You Can Protect, Monitor, and Control Your Home from anywhere .

1. Detect & protect
2. Control
1. Lock and unlock your doors from anywhere, Get instant alerts if there’s unexpected movement or entry in your home and protect valuable items.

2. Set a camera to take a series of photos when unwanted motion or entry is detected and if there’s unwanted motion or entry Be notified if doors or windows open unexpectedly.

Technological revolution has helped us in control everything we have as we are talking about smart homes.

- Doors can be controllers by fingerprint doors' lock.

- You can avoid annoying people by the help of secret cams it
helps you to see who's out or knocking at your house.

( Anyone can have a copy of your key but can not have a copy of your fingerprint)
Home Automation Access ways:

Telephone Access
Wireless Keypad Access
Touch Screen Access
Remote speech interaction
- A simple phone call to your system
can provide either direct control of
systems, or just an opportunity to
check on your home’s status.

With one button you can change lights, audio, and temperature to create the perfect environment for dining, entertaining, or viewing a movie and other systems such as access control respond accordingly.
Touch screen can be flush-mounted on a wall for easy access to all home functions
Different operations' modes:

Different overall modes are available. Each tied to a specific user all
of the actions can also be customized for each individual user.
Sleeping mode

Wake up mode

Sporting mode
- turn the light off
- play classic music
- turn the air conditioner on
-Turn the light on
- Open the curtains
- Turn the air conditioner off and the fan on
- Play jazz music
- Turn on sporting devices
Cost breakout:
Any Question?!

Thank You :)

Advantages :
1- Fun :
2- Simple to use :
3-improve safety levels :
4 – Save energy :
it is managing the home lighting system from your iPhone or managing your home entertainment system, you'll find home automation surprisingly enjoyable. you can control just about anything you wish in your home .

Once installed a home control system provides you with the ability to easily control all security, heating, lighting, and entertainment via an iPad, Smartphone or PC

Home automation systems allow you to store IP camera images on a secure server, which may be used as evidence for the police - if required.

Maximize the energy saving from the lighting system , life of lamps are extended due to reduced run time which reduces maintenance time and cost

Disadvantages :
1- High cost

2- Complicated

Technology Used
ZigBee is the wireless language that everyday devices use to connect to one another , ZigBee works for you. Testing your temperature, controlling your lights, even opening your drapes; keeping your home the way you like it.
1 - ZigBee
A ( .NET framework ) & C# language and .NET virtual machine Used for execution and testing SO the Home Manager can run on a Windows system .
2 -Arduino Uno :

The main piece in our project is an arduino ATmega328 kit attached by GPRS/GSM Shield .
The Arduino GSM Shield connects our Arduino to the network. Plug in a SIM card from an operator offering GPRS coverage and also you can also make/receive voice calls and send/receive SMS messages.
A relay is an electrically operated switch .
Motion & Temperature sensor .
How to use Smart Phone :
1- Using direct message form mobile to the GSM Shield.

2 -Using social sites, in this project we used the twitter web site.

3- Install the application on smart phone (Android platform) & Set the password and the initial secret code.

How Solar Works

We can change sunlight directly to electricity using solar cells. Every day, light hits your roof's solar panels with photons (particles of sunlight). The solar panel converts those photons into electrons of direct current ("DC") electricity. The electrons flow out of the solar panel and into an inverter and other electrical safety devices. The inverter converts that "DC" power (commonly used in batteries) into alternating current or "AC" power. AC power is the kind of electrical that your television, computer, and toasters use when plugged into the wall outlet.

Grid-tied systems are great for lowering your electrical bill, but require a connection to the utility company and go down when the grid goes down. Consider a grid-tie with battery backup system or a Kohler Generator for emergency power.Off-grid systems allow you to live and work with electricity in areas where utility power is either unavailable or too expensive to bring in. Off-grid is more about independence, but by living within your means, financially and energy-wise, you do save money.
1 - Smart home with arduino :
-ethernet module ENC28J60
-thermometer DS18B20 x2
-microphone module
-rain sensor
-PIR sensor
-reed switch
-resistor 4,7k Ω
-twisted-pair cable
-ethernet cable
-tools (soldering, screwdriver)
All the parts cost about $90
2 - Smart home as a Big project :
Smart Lighting cost :
a smart lighting setup would cost an average of $535.
Smart Climate Control cost :
you’re looking at an average cost of $265 for climate control.
Smart Security cost :
you’re looking at an average cost of $2000 for security system including at least three moisture sensors (kitchen, laundry, and one per bathroom).
Smart Luxury cost :
you’re looking at an average cost of $2300 for luxury cost .
Final cost :
you’re looking at an average cost of $5000 for final cost .
