So in this project, we build an Acoustic Home Automation Device in which we will be able to control this smart device without using any wireless connections like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. We will use Actions for Google and Dialogflow to build a test application for our Google Assistant to make it play encoded audio (Chirp). This audio will then be captured by the Arduino nano BLE sense board running the Chirp Arduino Program, based on the message encoded in the data the Arduino board could perform any action like toggling an AC load controlling the RGB LED, etc. It might sound like a lot, but it is relatively simple.
Home automation has become very common now days and people are using IoT to automate everything in their home. Here in this tutorial we will use a Real Amazon Echo dot speaker and create a custom skill to control AC home appliances like lights, Fans, TVs, Sockets using an Amazon Echo dot Speaker. Here we will use Arduino UNO and an ESP8266-01 Wi-Fi module to connect Echo dot speaker with AC appliances. After this tutorial, you will be able to control any appliance though Alexa.
In this tutorial, we will attach a AC appliance with Relay and make a temperature controlled home automation system using Arduino. It also shows the temperature and appliance status on the 16*2 LCD display connected with the circuit.
In this project we are going to explore the possibility of controlling AC appliances with the click of buttons on a webpage using internet. Using this IoT based home automation system, you can control your Home appliances from anywhere in the world. This web server can be run from any device which can run HTML applications, like Smart Phone, tablet, computer etc.
IoT Junction box for Home Automation using ESP8266
In this project let us learn how to make a Junction Box whose switches can be toggled remotely using your Phone or Computer with active internet connection. This project is capable of toggling any two AC loads whose current rating is not more than 5A or ~800Watts. Once you understand the concept you can extend the number or AC loads by using advanced ESP modules and also increase the power rating of the loads by using high rating relays.
In this project you will be able to toggle (ON/OFF) any AC load using an ordinary Remote from the comfort of your Chair/Bed. To make this project more interesting we have also enabled a feature to control the speed of the fan with the help of Triac. All these can be done with simple clicks on your IR remote. You can use any of your TV/DVD/MP3 remote for this project. The different IR signals from the remote are received by the microcontroller which then controls the respective relays via a relay driver circuit. These relays are used to connect and disconnect the AC Loads (Lights/Fan).
