Home automation system gains popularity due to communications technology advancement. Smart Home (SH) is one of the Internet of Things (IoT) applications that facilitates the control and real time monitoring of home appliances over the Internet. Most existing systems are not affordable for most users due to high cost and difficult in maintenance. In addition, the existing systems are either locally or remotely controlled. Last but not the least is the lack of user-friendly interface. To overcome these limitations, this project proposes a cost effective and hybrid (local and remote) IoT-based home automation system which monitors and controls home appliances easily and efficiently via a user-friendly interface using smartphones and/or laptops. The project aims at enhancing the design and fabrication of an existing SH prototype to utilizing the IoT technology. The proposed system will integrate both technologies; Wi-Fi for local control and the IoT for enabling remote control and monitoring via an IoT platform and check ubiquitously if something is happening. This allows the system to be independent of both user location and mobile provider. NodeMCU act as a microcontroller and WIFI as a communication protocol. The status sent by the WIFI connected microcontroller managed system can be received by the user on smart phone or computer from any distance irrespective of whether the electronic devices is connected to the internet. The software used to programme the NodeMCU is the Arduino software (IDE). This software helps to write and upload the programme into the chip in the microcontroller. The system then can merged to the switches and sensor of home appliances to prove efficient control. Several sensors will be attached to under controlled household appliances and placed throughout the home to track activities and events, and then send the sensed data wirelessly to a gateway. The system will be integrated with alert devices to detect any threats for safety and security purposes. The proposed system will be an enabler for easier, safer, and more comfortable life especially for elderly and disabled people.
