Arduino based home automation projects - List of all home automation related projects - Sub projects.
Home automation is the use and control of home appliances remotely or automatically. Early home automation began with labour-saving
machines like washing machines. Some home automation appliances are stand alone and do not communicate, such as a programmable
light switch, while others are part of the internet of things and are networked for remote control and data transfer. Hardware devices can
include sensors (like cameras and thermometers), controllers, actuators (to do things), and communication systems. Remote control can
range from a simple remote control to a smartphone with Bluetooth, to a computer on the other side of the world connected by internet.
Home automation systems are available which consist of a suite of products designed to work together. These typically connected through
Wi-Fi or power line communication to a hub which is then accessed with a software application. Popular applications include thermostats,
security systems, blinds, lighting, smoke/CO detectors, and door locks. Popular suites of products include X10, Z-Wave, and Zigbee all of
which are incompatible with each other. Home automation is the domestic application of building automation.

Water is a precious resource. Millions of people do not have access to clean drinking water, and as many as 4000
