Abstract: Home automation is an important milestone in achieving smart grid and is ever exciting field that has exploded over the past few years. Advancement in technologies have made homes more convenient, efficient and even more secure. The main objective of present work proposes an efficient implementation for IoT (Internet of Things) used for monitoring and controlling the home appliances via World Wide Web. Home automation system uses the portable devices as a user interface. They can communicate with home automation network through an Internet gateway, by means of low power communication protocols like Zig bee, Wi-Fi etc. This project aims at controlling home appliances via Smartphone using Wi-Fi as communication protocol and raspberry pi as server system. The user here will move directly with the system through a web-based interface over the web, whereas home appliances like lights, fan and door lock are remotely controlled through easy website. The server will be interfaced with relay hardware circuits that control the appliances running at home. If the web affiliation is down or the server isn't up, the embedded system board still will manage and operate the appliances domestically. The main advantage of this is small device can be part of internet so it is easy to communicate, manage and control without human interferences. Also, it provides high degree of security, safety, comfort and energy saving.
