I. Aim and Objective

With depleting natural resources globally, the
dilemma of efficient power management is in the
mainstream nowadays. Therefore, it is extremely
important that valuable energy resources are not
wasted. For instance: leaving lights on in an empty
room plays a very small part in the wastage of
energy but several of such wastage situations result
in a worldwide shortage of energy resources.
Our prime objective is to design a micro-
controlled power management system model that
will provide a way to deal with the energy crisis. It Figure 1 Circuit Diagram
will automatically control the switching of lights and
other appliances depending on the number of people
inside the room.

IX. Relay 1 The power supply consists of a step-down
transformer 230/12V, which steps down the voltage
to 12V AC. This is converted to a DC using a Bridge

filter, and it is then regulated to +5V using a voltage
regulator 7805, which is required for the operation
of the microcontroller and other components.

III. IR Proximity Sensor

This IR Proximity Sensor is a multipurpose
infrared sensor which can be used for obstacle
sensing, colour detection, fire detection, line
sensing, etc. and also as an encoder sensor. The Sensor comes with ambient light protection

The sensor outputs a logic one (+5V) at the digital mounting
output when an object is placed in front of the ii)Specification
sensor and a logic zero (0V), when there is no
object in front of the sensor. An on-board LED is Operational Voltage: 5V
used to indicate the presence of an object. This Ambient Light & RGB Colour Sensing
digital output can be directly connected to 8051 Proximity Sensing
or any other microcontroller to read the sensor Gesture Detection
output. Operating Range: 4-8in (10-20cm)
IR sensors are highly susceptible to ambient light I2C Interface (I2C Address: 0x39)
and the IR sensor on this sensor is suitably
covered to reduce effect of ambient light on the
sensor. The sensor has a maximum range of
around 40-50 cm indoors and around 15-20 cm
