Conventional electrical installations used in various building today poses great difficulty for physically challenged and elderly persons to operate them. Sometimes it is also inconvenient for normal person to use productively. Because of the increasing number of both the elderly and the disabled persons, an implementation of a smart home system is proposed in this paper. In addition to the convenience, the system also provides a platform for inclusion of the elderly and physically challenged individuals in both homes and offices, thereby enabling them to contribute meaningful to the development of the economy. The system gives home users wireless control over the house hold lighting systems, ventilation systems and the home main gate using an application running on an android smart phone. It also provides the user with an up to date temperature reading of the surrounding and the energy consumed by the device in the house. A centralized controller was developed around PIC 18F4550 microcontroller to handle the data acquisition and processing for the system. The overall system performance was demonstrated in controlling lamps, fans and gate of a prototyped one bedroom flat and confirmed the success of the design.
