Managing Energy demand in Smart Houses Using Sensors and Logic Circuits


  •   Ahmed M. D. E. Hassanein


There is an ever increasing demand on consumption of electrical energy but the production of energy is limited. A growing need to design smart houses that would reduce consumption of electrical energy is emerging. In this paper we propose a simple electrical design based on logic circuits and sensors. The paper also addresses one of the main concerns of third world countries in which a country needs to encourage dependence on local designs and products and reduce importing goods using foreign currency. The sensors detect daytime and presence of people inside houses. Based on these two pieces of information, we can make our houses tailored to put light on and off just to serve the needs of the users without any losses. The electrical design is very simple and saves almost 15% of the consumed energy.
