Automation is not a new idea in our modern life. Large businesses and wealthy homeowners have already implemented this technology for years now. In recent years saw this concept getting more accessible to very home owner, due to cheaper cost, easier to setup and used modular concept and also higher internet penetration rate. However, none of this system really focused on the needs of the handicapped and the elderly, thus the aim for this project. This niche group of people has different needs than other type of user. Similar to other home automation system, it is able to control electrical appliances remotely from a Smartphone, laptop or any Wi-Fi enabled device, but it can be configured to do specific task depending on the user needs. Furthermore, monitoring features can be added to enable other family member to monitor the disable and the elderly via the internet, and remotely control attached devices. It is hoped that it will provide a better quality of life, while reducing the electricity wastage by giving user the power to control, conserve and react according to user needs, or also can be done by using the scheduling function for automatic operation of home appliances.
