Abstract

The modern electronics era has improved the quality of life in many ways, from residential lighting to indoor living environments to entertainment choices. As gadgets and systems remain powered up and ever ready to meet human demands, a significant portion on their up-time is spent in stand-by or low-power mode - if one is available. Unless these gadgets and systems are capable of low-power mode and controlled by a centralized control unit or individually programmed; power savings cannot be achieved. A retro-fit after-market automation scheme is needed to achieve smart power saving capabilities in a traditional (non-automated) household with multiple gadgets and systems with differing functionalities and capabilities from various manufactures. This paper describes a system architecture for retro-fitting after-market automation using a smartphone as the unifying or controlling master device.
