Title: Smart Home Automation


The process of improving and upgrading the living standard of the house has been raised due to
the advanced technology applied in this era society. Home automation is building mechanization
for a home, called a smart home [1]. It includes the control and computerization of lighting,
warming, ventilation, cooling, and security, and also home machines, for example,
washer/dryers, stoves or fridges/coolers and others [2]. Home automation based on internet of
things idea is a solution to the people who forget to close the home appliance(light,fan,air
conditioning,radio,tv, door,window,and so on ) in his/her home or office but needs to do that
later when we are at home or office without return to do it.

Smart home system is the use of advanced computer technology, network communication
technology and automatic control technology, which combines the relevant subsystem into a
whole control system. The first "home computer" was an experimental system in 1966[3]. Vinay
sagar K N, Kusuma S M proposed a Home Automation system that employs Internet based
wireless system for multi-functional devices. Although the system has a low cost and flexible
wireless solution to the home automation, there are still some limitations related to the wireless
communication range and power failure [4]. In our project we use internet as it is used in
previous work [4] , and our contribution is to combine panel solar and electricity to solve the
problems of periodic power outage.


II.1 Main objectives

The main objective of this project is to design and simulate system for smart house automation
based on IOT.

The specific objectives of our project are the following:

. To design and simulate automated Process

.to control the home appliance remotely


In our research project we use two main methods which is documentation and simulation

III.1 documentation

There are four major forms of engineering documentation used in our research project which are
notebook, project, tutorials and presentations[5].

II.1.1 presentation

Engineering presentations are work evaluated by the instructor in front of the class ,in our
project we follow the presentation video from youtube.

II.1.2 tutorials

A tutorials is a method of transferring knowledge and may be used as a part of

a learning process. More interactive and specific than a book or a lecture, a tutorial seeks to teach
by example and supply the information to complete a certain task[6] .

II.1.3 project

Project engineering includes all parts of the design of manufacturing or processing facilities,
either new or modifications to and expansions of existing facilities. A "project" consists of a
coordinated series of activities or tasks performed by engineers, designers, drafters and others
from one or more engineering disciplines or departments

II.1.4 notebook
Notebook is the small written note book which deliverable engineering documentation of
knowledge, problems, failures, starting points, decision , safety, tests, success, theory of
operation, troubleshooting guides, recycling, disposal,


To do simulation we will use Cisco Packet Tracer which is a network simulation and
visualization tool. This free software helps us to practice project network configuration .

IV. project scope

Our project is very important and is made up mains system as shown in background but due to
the budget of whole project and time we have which is very short,we are going to design and
simulating only the systems containing home appliance (light, fans, door, windows and garage)
automation control, while security control and security protection is for the future or others
come after us.

V. Expected results

The home automation using Internet of Things has been experimentally proven to work by
connecting simple appliances to it and the appliances were successfully controlled remotely
through internet. After completing of our project, all device will be connected together and
controlled remotely and is look like the following figure .
