System Description: The concept of smart spaces and remote monitoring is becoming ever more pervasive in modern society. This project followed the design, build and full implemention phases of a real-time environmental monitoring system. This system can be used to regulate a small to medium sized office. Through a web-based platform, the system is able to control temperature/heat, lighting as well as remotely operate office door access, windows and window blinds.
Through the Office Environmental Management portal/interface, hereby branded SMART OFFICE, one is able to set desired temperature and humidity which should be maintained thoughout. Once a change is detected [based on the data obtained from sensors], appropriate measures to correct it is effected. For example, if the temperature falls below 25 or goes above 25 [Assuming the default is 25°C ], the heater is turned on or the fan is turned on respectively.
Monitoring and control can be done anywhere in the world!
Office is monitored for conducive micro-climate
The interface has been designed in such a way that little expertise is required to operate
The system cost less to implement
