Abstract

In
our research we are going to give an idea of “Smart Home” that is about home
appliances that control by an application with smart phone. These home
appliances will control by one application that is used one Control panel for
all smart devices (Home Appliances). This application will be universal control
that compatible with all smart devices. These Smart devices will be lights, TV,
DVD player, Oven, Air conditioner, Fan. These Home Appliances will be Smart
devices that provide by “Smart Home Companies”. Another feature in this
research is the application interface must be user friendly that understand by
users easily. That application designed by more other perspective means those
users that are disabled, these users that have thumb problem and other
physically disorder, they can use Control Panel of Application by Voice
Recognition feature that must include in Application features whenever need to
use this Control Panel it switch to Voice Recognition. And another features
that application works like in intelligent environment that should be if
multiple appliances work same time then application give aware to users by
giving notifications of devices. The Control panel must compatible of updates
of Smart devices whenever user add new Device in application. Another feature
would be integration of “Cloud Computing” means online database that store information
of users and smart devices of Smart Home by daily basis and maintain the data
by Security Feature.

Vision & Scope

In
our team we are two members. We are going to write a research paper related to
Human Computer Interaction.  We decide to
do work on home appliance Controller, basically we want to work on remote
access in Home Appliance Controller. User have remote access to control their
home appliances.

Our
idea give a remote access to the user. Users have an app in their mobile phone
for control the home appliances. User have the remote access for this purpose.
Many users may login for control the home appliances. Every user have their own
id and password for login or access the software.  By using this users may have many benefits
like a user is in office and comes to home and want that AC of their room
should be on so users may have easily do this.

 

Introduction

In modern life home is
most essential element, Smart Home was first mentioned in the 1990’s, and smart
home is integration of technology and services through home networking for a
better quality of living. Smart Home design is based on the analyzing fundamental
requirements for the modern living. This living style include the digital
electronics, internet communication and automated devices. Basically smart home
concept combine the commercial products with system services and management,
its support the additional requirements, efficiency, intelligence, security.
According to these requirements, make the more secure and modern living style.
Smart home products have recently seen an increase in published studies and
making the smart home fast-developing and popular area of research. People tend
to prefer simplicity in our modern society. Smart home development’s caters to
requirements for ease of living while providing a new and revolutionized
lifestyle. By the simplifying the operation of electronic appliances smart home
maximize family time. Universal control pads can be used to operate smart
devices such as TV’s, air conditioners, lights, fans, Owen’s. In addition smart
home can be highly customize according to personal performance. To support the
requirements of smart home development of user interface and digital products
is essential. New product features and services can attract the attention of
millions of users, As a result user experiences research has become an integral
part of product design process, which play an essential role in product
invention. For example user can on off the electronics appliances by mobile
phone. User have its own account for this purpose, this is for the security
purpose. Provide the remote access user may use on off the home appliances
easily whenever user is in anywhere in the world, because user have the remote
access. User have an app in his mobile phone. For example user comes from their
office and wants that his room will be cool, for this purpose user may on the
AC of their room by using an app.

Methodology:

In
our proposed system, the smart home devices means Home appliances that control
by microcontroller. This system worked on Web based system that are web enabled
devices. We created the user friendly interface of application that is based on
Android system. The microcontroller (Arduino) should be Wi-Fi enabled and that
sends the data over the internet. The microcontroller gives power supply to
home appliances and control them by sending command from the user. Also connected
with the Wi-Fi modem.

The
web server means cloud server that runs the system and user installed the
application on mobile and fetch the data from online server (Cloud server).
That application has login page that allow to user give enter the username and
Password and then system check login data from the user and user access the
control panel of application as well. That application don’t access unknown
person which have no password and username. That browser based application have
an unique IP that connects to the microcontroller, that is port address of
microcontroller.

 

Fig # 1

Above
figure shows that Firstly user open the application then application open the
login page that allow to authorize user to login by giving username and
password. After the login process, user enters in Home page that consists on
Menu of home appliances.

The
user access the Appliances at anywhere like in Office etc. user firstly connect
the with the microcontroller via the IP (port address) to get login and then
application opens the Menu that consists on Appliances Icons that would be FAN,
TV, Motor, Room Lights etc. user clicks on his desired Icon that he wanted to
control and control would be opened and then sends the command to Appliances.
That control panel shows if user click on the FAN icon, that shows the turn on,
turn off, and regulator fan speed options and control them by using
application.

 

Fig # 2

In
above figure, after selecting the home appliances icon then application open
the control panel. Just like if user open FAN control panel page (in above
figure) that page consists turn on and turn off option accordingly. And another
facility to regulate the FAN speed by setting the bar on interface.

Another
feature of system we proposed a Web cam facility that provide secure
environment to the smart home. That web cam also enabled with the microcontroller.
That video surveillance system to help the user in this scenario in which if
any thief or unknown person try to enter the home through Windows of house and
then web cam captured the video of the suspect person and send to the user and
then user mobile alerts notification and sends the video of person on
application. And then user take action according to this situation. The video
sending mechanism by using microcontroller that internet enabled with the Wi-Fi
modem.

System
architecture

Fig

In
above figure, shown system architecture that how it is work and control the
appliances. First of all, all modules operational with central microcontroller
module. User sends the command to microcontroller and then it control the
appliance with respect to command. Microcontroller gives power supply to home
appliances that operates. And microcontroller enabled with Wi-Fi modem via
internet.

For controlling home
appliances, and for the purpose of the security wireless controlling system are
used. Wireless controlling system are used because these give the comfortable
environment for the user to use the home appliances. Wireless Smart home system
used many technologies and used many homes more than 3 million. Implement he
GPS module, this module used for the purpose that more helpful for the user is
sense of that when user have problem in internet or there is more traffic on
internet then the user control their home appliances by using GPS. By using the
GPS user send the message on main module or main circuit board of the home. For
high level communication protocols Micro controller based technology is used,
that is used for create personal area network. Basically home automation system
with micro controller module based on android wireless communication is used
for home security or control the home appliances. The main functionality of
this system is that energy regulations, energy saving and application control
by an android app. A control signal is send to Arduino by a smart phone
connected with arduino micro controller. 1

Ambient Assisted Living
(AAL) environments user interface for the smart home follow or adapt to the
need of their user and the preference of users. For the drivers type of the
users and interface introduced which context-driven user interface. Abstract
user interface models have been proposed for context-driven users at design
time, more over at run time dynamic approaches introduced. Due to the various
reasons this interface not widely used now a days.
Rather then the abstract structure (drop down Manu) the designer of the system
use pixel fidelity (pick one from many).
Designer of that system not use the new tool that required for new design
patron. Not give the flexibility tool for the users.
Cloud-for-all should adaptive user interface technology regarding to smart home
and its applications. Cloud-for-all is basically a part of international Global
Public Inclusive infrastructure (GPII) the purpose of this is that to ensure
the every one that face accessibility barriers due to digital literacy of
economic resources can access , use services for education, daily living,
safety. 2

In this paper describe

Conclusion

In
this paper we proposed a system that secure the home and monitor from anywhere
for the user. Another feature introduce a control the appliances like TV,
Lights, AC and etc. these appliances control via the microcontroller (Arduino).
System used controlling through remote access via the authorization of the
person that consists on a online server access (Cloud computing) and user
access this database over the internet by using android application. That
provide user friendly interface to user. User selecting the appliances Icons to
switch the Appliances control panel. For security purpose we use Web cam that
enables with the internet and then captured the unknown person or thief that
trying to enter in the home by absence of home owner and this camera passed the
signal to microcontroller and Alert the owner to entering the suspect person.
By using this system in the market point of view. It is the cost effective and
easy to user for every person.
