Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Implementation of a Reliable and Cost Effective Smart Home System
by Jain, Mithilesh, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 32; 10262917
Abstract (Summary)

Automation will define the way people live and work over the next decade. Current home automation systems have limitations in terms of wireless connectivity, speed, bandwidth, and implementation cost. The current project presents a smart home system, which provides wireless control of appliances such as lights, fans, and alarms using Bluetooth. Bluetooth provides a higher transmission speed and greater bandwidth, consuming less power than existing wireless protocols. The proposed design incorporates a Bluetooth-powered Advanced Reduced Instruction Set Computer Machine (ARM7) processor that continuously measures light intensity, temperature, and carbon-monoxide levels from sensors and compares them with threshold levels to be able to determine the appropriate control action. Furthermore, this smart home system also allows individuals to directly control their appliances through a smartphone-based Android application. The system has been implemented and tested experimentally under varying environmental conditions. The experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of this low-cost, efficient home automation system.
