This project proposes a framework to implement an intelligent lighting system. The main reason for developing such project is that maximum energy is wasted due to inefficient use of the consumer appliances. To be specific, a light accounts for a huge part of the total energy consumption. Though there are number of light control systems are introduced but most of them are outdated. This is because the existing light control systems cannot be applied to home and working place successfully. The ARDUINO UNO R3 is used as the main component which interfaces IR sensor, LUX sensor, GAS sensor and GSM module. LUX sensor is used as light to digital converter which senses the brightness and with the help of ARDUINO. This will reduce the intensity of the LED according to the surrounding, by this the energy consumption is reduced. The main advantage of the usage of the IR sensor is, it can count the number of individuals entering into the room and according to that it will improve the intensity of the LED. Here we added an additional features which can able to detect the gas and notifies through GSM to a phone. These technologies have been concentrated more so that this system can be used in domestic applications.
