ECO@Home - energy control at home

A home automation system allows you to monitor living spaces and to control elements such as lighting and heating. Currently, home automation systems are used for convenience of the occupants. The aim of this project is to design a home automation controller with the ability to carry complex energy management algorithms that are simple to configure and to use. The design will highlight the technology's tremendous potential to control and reduce energy consumption of residential properties.
