In the fast growing world it is necessary to control the home appliances from remote locations through some set of instructions inputted into the computer. Electrical appliances need to be protected against over voltage in order to avoid appliance damage, this is essential as the reliability of the appliances will be improved. With the advancement of technology things are becoming simpler and easier for consumers. This paper presents an automation system that switches on/off electrical appliances at a specified time using PC, which can be placed in any location in the house (room). The on/off system can be programmed in advanced to perform a specific assignment at the required time. The aim of developing this system is to save time and manpower along with maintaining security and convenience. PIC18F4550 microcontroller acts as the ‘intelligence’ for this system in executing the tasks and operations according to the user’s wish. The system’s Graphical User Interface (GUI) was developed using Microsoft Visual Basic.Net to enable the user to easily control and monitor the appliances remotely.
