Abstract

The title of this research is “Power-Switching Prototype System for a Household via Wi-Fi and SMS.” This system is composed of an Android application called “BrightLight”, and a single-board microcontroller called “Gizduino”. This system is capable of wirelessly switching the power of lights of a household and scheduling each device for repetitive light switching activities depending on the users’ need. The proponents used different software such as Eclipse to develop the Android application using Java programming language, Arduino IDE to connect to the Arduino hardware, as well as upload sketches or programs; SQLiteManager; Android Development Tools; and Android Software Development Kit. The designs such as the images, icons, and logo were created using Adobe Photoshop. The proponents used different references such as forums, tutorials, videos, articles, and different websites for the project to be realized. To further improve and test the system, the researchers conducted a survey to nine (9) SWAFO personnel, three (3) security personnel of DLSU-D Library, two (2) clinic personnel, four (4) Computer Studies Department faculty, and thirty-two (32) randomly selected students from DLSU-D, with a total of fifty (50) respondents. The researchers were able to prove that a total home renovation is not necessary in automating light switches in a household setting. The use of simple hardware materials like microcontroller, relays, and shift registers makes cheaper home automation very possible.
