Abstract: In today’s rapidly moving world where almost everything is driven by technology, it has become the central and essential part of living. Internet of Things (IoT) conceptualizes the idea of remotely connecting and monitoring real world objects (things) through the internet. With increasing rate of crime, protecting our loved ones and our belongings has become important. Such situations can be solved by exploiting the latest functionalities that current technology has to offer i.e. IOT which provides seamless data communication; remote control ability makes it easier to automate the process of security. Automation of security can be achieved by designing an application on Raspberry Pi and ATmega 328 microcontroller through various sensors such as motion sensor -PIR (Passive Infrared) sensors for detection of any intruder in the house, upon detection an alarm is raised and the owner of the house and notification messages are provided. When it comes to our house, this concept can be aptly incorporated to make it smarter, safer and automated. This project presents the overall design of Home Automation System (HAS) with low cost and wireless system. The smart home concept in the system improves the standard living at home. Whenever a person come in front of the house the PIR motion detector sensor detect the person and a message will send to the house owner and he can see the person through the camera in front of the house. The camera is accessed to the web page and also the light, fan, door lock, alarm can be controlled with the web page. The system intended to control electrical appliances and devices in house with relatively low cost design, user-friendly interface and ease of installation. According to the priority of the person the owner can control the electrical appliances. Those who get the authentication can unlock the door by entering password on the keypad and use the home appliances depending on the priority set by the owner.
