DIY home automation project to turn your appliances on or off via internet/wifi using any device (PC, Mobile, Tablet or any device have access to internet through web browser).

Technology used 

  • Bootstrap to keep our app responsive and accessable from any device
  • Angularjs to quickly bind buttons status from Arduino web service (API)
  • jQuery for bootstrap
  • CSS3 keyframes feature for a beautiful loading event



  • Arduino uno rev3: it's the most used and documented board of the whole Arduino family. it's microcontroller board based on the ATmega328P. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs.
  • Ethernet Shield with SD card support: allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet using the Ethernet library, also read and write an SD card using the SD library.
  • 4 relays board: control your appliances using 2 states (NO and NC) normally closed circuit and normally opened circuit.
  • SD card formatted in Fat16 or Fat32
  • Jumber wires


How to use it

  1. Download the repository from Github
  2. Compile the code in Brightery_Automation.ino file and upload it to your Arduino Uno using Arduino IDE it's available for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
  3. copy the index.htm file to your SD card, you must format it to FAT16 or FAT32 file system, and put the index.htm on the SD card root.
  4. install the ethernet shield to the Arduino Uno like a puzzle, putting the 2 chips over and cheerfully check the pins on place cause it's easy to damage.
  5. wire the relay port 4 pins to the pins (5,6,7 and 8) and don't forgot to wire the 5v and GND of relays to the Arduino uno
put the index.htm to sd card root
Access the board IP to control your appliances via relays
