Smart Remote for Controlling Electrical Appliances through Android Mobile

Now a day’s so many useful technologies are coming out to make our life style more comfort, luxurious and secure. Especially in mobile field so many application are being developed to give us more information and entertainment . This project “Smart Remote for Controlling Electrical Appliances through Android Mobile ”  is designed with combination of two latest and most demanding technologies that are Android and Embedded Systems. Android is a Linux based operating system designed primarily for mobile devices and it is a open source .There are so many applications are already developed on Android and many applications are being developed at free of cost for its users . We can also develop our own customized applications with free of cost or with minimum cost according to our requirements. In this project we will create an application to control electrical appliances in industry or home or office. Whenever we operate this application, it sends commands to our controlling system through blue tooth. At controlling system side we have Bluetooth module, micro controller and load controlling circuits. Whenever this blue tooth module receives command from android application then it transfers this command to micro controller. Micro controller will control the respective loads depends upon the command it received. This is very safe and secure and also we can control many loads without getting confused by adding names or images in the application.

Software Tools:

  • KEIL IDE for developing micro controller code
  • ORCAD for designing schematics
  • PROLOAD or FLASH MAGIC for dumping the hex file into controller
  • Eclipse for developing Android application

 Hardware Tools:

  • AT89S52 Micro controller.
  • MOC3021 for driving TRIACs.
  • BT136 for controlling AC loads.
  • Blue tooth module
  • Regulated +5v Power supply.

Advantages:

  • No need of separate remote or switch boards for controlling electrical appliances
  • Protection from shock while operating
  • Easy to use, children, old aged people, physically challenged people can also operate

Applications:

  • Office automation
  • Home automation
  • Machines controlling system in industry
  • Door access control system
