The project is designed to control home circuit by using a personal computer (PC) for the safety of old persons, handicapped, who is most busy and some where human can’t reach easily.
This proposed system provides a solution that ensures safety and easy for users. The control to turn ON /OFF the home appliances will be maintained by the authorized person only because this system has an arrangement such that a password is required to operate the circuit breaker (On/Off).
This system is fully controlled by a microcontroller from the 8051 family. A USB to serial is interfaced to the microcontroller and hyper terminal used to enter the password. The entered password is compared with the password stored in the ROM of the microcontroller. If the password entered is correct, then only the line can be turned On/Off.
Furthermore, this project in future can be enhanced by using EEPROM, for the user to change the password for more secured system interaction. It can also be interfaced with a GSM modem for remotely controlling the circuit breaker via SMS.
