App Based Automated Home

While we create a system for home automation to access or control a home feature remotely through our smart phone the area of interest we need to work upon configuration of some electronics components and programming of connected computer system. These systems can be understood and implemented with very common and basic concepts of science and math. So we are introducing this workshop for our school going techies and inviting them to make their learning with all fun of practicals and projects possible.


Can access computer system and make use of internet to perform search over Google.

Need to Prepare?

Prior programming experience is not required.

Tools Expected:-

Windows OS based PC, Internet Connection, Smart Phone, Notebook and Pen

Tools Provided (for the session):-

Arduino Board, HC – 05 Bluetooth Module, 12V Relay, 1 KΩ Resistor, Power Supply, Connecting Wires, Breadboard (Prototyping Board) and App for transmitting voice to Bluetooth
