In this project, we will see the Automatic Room Lights using Arduino and PIR Sensor, where the lights in the room will automatically turn ON and OFF by detecting the presence of a human.
Such Automatic Room Lights can be implemented in your garages, staircases, bathrooms, etc. where we do not need continuous light but only when we are present.
A PIR (Passive Infrared) Controlled Smart Home Project involves creating a system that uses PIR motion sensors to detect human presence and trigger various smart home actions.
This project can encompass multiple aspects of home automation and provide convenience, energy savings, and security. Here’s an outline to help you get started:
