by Kumar, Ayush, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 42; 10195769
Abstract (Summary)

Home automation systems have gained popularity in recent years, paralleling the advances in the concept of the Internet of Things. The current project presents the implementation of an inexpensive home automation system, within the framework of assistive technology. The system implementation is based on the Arduino microcontroller, with Bluetooth communications capability, and it is designed for use by the elderly and people with disabilities. The system is user-friendly, with an intuitive interface implemented on an Android-based smart phone. Demonstrations show that the system facilitates control of home appliances, lights, heating, cooling systems and security devices by the intended users, i.e. the elderly and the disabled.
