We developed an exuberant room automation system that enables users to remotely control electronic appliances of a hotel room by mobile application remotely.
The room automation system is a smart solution to remotely control electronic appliances installed and functioning through a smart phone using network protocols.
ABOUT THE CLIENT
Conserving electricity and power is of prime importance in managing cost within hotel industry. The industry by and large is constantly looking at ways to manage and control electrical appliances. Hotelier are looking for innovative ideas such as controlling all appliances using Smart phones from a remote location.
For instance, the mobile app should switch on/off the electrical appliances, speed control, and various another task that needs to do manually.
Client company wanted us to execute on their idea / concept of room automation system using Internet of Things (IoT). The motive in mind – control and automate room electronic appliances from a mobile app with the intention of energy consumption and remote controlling.
A system needed to be designed through which users can control the electronic appliances from a remote location using mobile phones by sending instructions to the hardware device (attached to electrical appliances) and save on electricity consumption and manual human efforts.
With rapid increase in the number of users of internet over the past decade and day by day improvement in Internet of Things (IoT) technology has made this as a practical and viable solution.
Our Software development team came up with a software module (mobile application interface) to enable device / appliance to interface and interact via networking protocols.
We at Emorphis developed a system which consists of a mobile application interface as front end and hardware attached to appliances to receive commands as a back-end. The mobile application controls these appliances remotely. Our engineers developed a universal smart hardware to control the electrical load with the capability of communicating with mobile application using multiple communication protocol.
Through a unique IP address within the network, each device / appliance can interact actively with the surrounding area. When the connection between the mobile application, and the device is established the user can give command to the device and automate / control them from remote / local location.
IoT PERSPECTIVE – HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEM
Wi-Fi based switching circuit to switch On/Off Electrical Loads and Mobile application to control operation.
Scope of Work:
The scope of work includes designing, testing and validation of a switch circuit board which will have Wi-Fi communication capability, and can be used to switch the electrical equipment On/Off. A mobile application will be developed for controlling these devices.
IoT Technology Used:
- Firmware: C
- Mobile Application: Java
- Microcontroller: Atmega328
- Compiler: GNU / GCC
- The hardware runs on mains power supply.
- With this hardware, multiple devices and appliance can relate to different load specifications.
- The hardware is flexible, and can connect to different communication protocol like, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GSM.
- Mobile application and firmware can be upgraded.
- The operation in the mobile application can be handled via configuration file which can be downloaded from the server periodically.
- iOS & Android
- Embedded Hardware Design
- Firmware Design
- Wi-Fi / Bluetooth / GSM
