Abstract: In today’s technological era, the use of modern electronic devices has been increases swiftly with various methods for controlling and monitoring home appliances such as ZigBee, Bluetooth, SMS. With the rapid growth in use of internet, it enables all new approaches to control and monitor smart home remotely. The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit; when Internet of Things is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020. Home automation systems are collections of interconnected electronic devices for controlling different types of functions within a house, such as temperature monitoring, light control, fire sensor etc. Smart devices are ideal in providing a user friendly interface in a home automation system, due to their portability and their wide range of capabilities. Proposed system has User Friendly GUI and can be access globally from any device which has internet connectivity.
