Most people always forgot to switch off the light when they go for a holiday and leave the light on as long as they are away. This could lead to the waste of electricity. If the lights are turned off, dark surroundings will make the house prone to burglary. Technology in network and communication system allows us to remotely control the lightings either off or on in order to pretend the house is occupied. The aim of this project is to develop an automatic home lighting system that can be controlled remotely using internet of things (IoT) technology. Mobile application (SmartLi) for home lightings was developed and integrated with intensity and motion sensor. The porch lamp will light up when it’s dark and will also become brighter whenever any motion is detected nearby.
