IoT based Solar assisted Smart Home for Old age People

Authors(5) :-Arpitha S .S, Deekshitha U .S, Nisarga L, Sowndarya H .L, Ayesha Taranum

This paper elaborates the idea of using solar system for managing household electricity consumption. The proposed solution aims at reducing the overall electrical energy consumption per household, thus decreasing their monthly electricity bills. The solution is based on controlling of Smart home which includes machines such as bulb, fan, water tank etc. This system monitors the water level in the tank and automate ON/OFF by specifying the threshold value and finally an emergence alert in the form of Push notification is sent to the nearby hospital and the relatives whenever elderly and old age people are in emergence condition. Solar Power has been interfaced with microcontroller and other house hold instruments. All these instruments can be controlled and wastage of energy can be curbed. Smart home automation system particularly for old age people is proposed based on java, ardiuno, raspberry pi and android application. The instruments are controlled by the Raspberry pi server, which operates according to the surrounding temperature and brightness factor and also the threshold level set as in case of water tank and sends a push notification to the adjoining infirmary and relatives to the mobile phone when old age people are in exigency condition.
