Home Automation has been a hot topic for a couple of years. Advanced researches in this field has led to invention of Smart Personal Assistants, Smart Lights, switches, thermostats, cameras and sensor based equipment. In this project we are proposing a system to intuitively control and monitor electrical components at home or office using a real time control system. Various types of solutions have been proposed and implemented for Home Automation. Some solutions use some additional hardware and software to existing systems, some prefer replacing existing hardware with smart electronic hardware. The current available market products are much expensive for most of the developing economies in the world. We have designed a system that is both inexpensive, secure, easy to implement and uses open-source technologies and software.
