Home Automation System (HAS), security systems, Integrated Development Environment (IDE), saving energy, Internet of Things (IoT), Arduino


To make our life less complex and secure, the trendy solution nowadays is to use a Home Automation System (HAS). The HAS allows to control all the house appliances wirelessly. It offers a home security and emergency system as well as the ability to regulate various electrical appliances. It provides access to control the devices in the home and office. The smart home automated control system is an easy-to-use home automation system, where Android application is the bases for that. It is a portable system and easy to install, configure, run, and maintain. The HAS allows to control all the house appliances wirelessly. To control 10 to 16 devices a smartphone application is used, where Bluetooth technology and sensors are suggested to connect the system. This paper implemented a secure HAS by utilizing an Arduino microprocessor (AT Mega 2560) and an Android application (Remote XY). A Bluetooth module (HC-06) is establishing the communication between an Android mobile device and the Arduino, where the appliances are connected through its microprocessor. The examination of the system showed that it is properly worked and no fault alarm happens for face recognition or in controlling the different appliances.
