The world has moved further from the time when Thomas Edison first introduced the light bulb to the world in the early 80’s which was nothing short of a miracle in those times and changed the daily household for good. Since then there has been a vast array of advancement in home appliances which have provided a lot of convenience and help for people, who use it to make their life easy. But these appliances have always required one thing that is the presence of an operator to control them, to turn them on or to turn them off. Today people are looking at ways and means to improve their life-style using the latest technologies which are available. Any new facility or home appliance that promises to enhance their life-style is grabbed by the consumers. The more such facilities and appliances are added, the more it becomes inevitable to have easy and convenient methods and means to control and operate these appliances. Conventional wall switches are located in different parts of a house and this requires manual operations like to switch on or off. It gets virtually impossible to keep track of appliances that are running and also to monitor their performance. To overcome this manual system, an idea called Home automation using the Internet of things can be used. In this various sensors and microcontrollers like Arduinouno, RaspberryPi, NodeMCU are connected through servers like MQTT and HTTP via the internet.
