Abstract: With the rapid advancements in the field of technology, home automation systems are growing in popularity. Amazon's Alexa and Google Home have taken the market by storm. A Smart Home System gives access to all controllable household appliances and can help render the electricity supply in a household, reducing consumption by controlling usage. Existing innovations in this field operate predominantly on sound. This paper presents a system which relies on gestures to control household devices. A glove with sensors & Arduino microcontroller works as the central hub. Performing gestures while wearing the glove performs certain tasks. Additionally, there is a machine learning module to predict the electricity bill based on usage. With such technology, we can truly usher in the digital age.
