Home Automation with Microcontroller and NetworkingThe Internet now enables us to distribute information worldwide without time constraint, permittinginformation to be displayed on any client platform. This has generated great impact on the processingand control of information/knowledge acquisition in home and manufacturing/commerce automation.The ability to acquire information and even to control instruments/devices at fingertips over theInternet is becoming desirable not only to the professionals but also to the end users in general.Thanks to the development of Internet Technology, distance monitoring and control ofdevices are emerging realities. Individuals nowadays can access information and receive signalsat home over the Internet. Network connections can be used for transmitting and receiving data from amicrocontroller because in most cases, the infrastructure already exists and hence there is no need toinstall a medium for the data to travel. This paper will present the home automation projectdesigned/developed by the students based on a socket connection functions from the library.The microcontroller and network connections in conjunction with sensors are used to control devices ina typical home. For simplicity this paper will explore only three outputs from the microcontroller andtwo analog inputs.
