Abstract: The purpose of this study is to showcase the design and development of a web-enabled home automation system prototype. The unit was developed using low-cost components such as the ubiquitous Arduino microcontroller. One of the features of the developed unit is the ability to monitor the power consumed by electrical loads. The unit also has the ability to control the status of individual loads through the internet using a web-enabled mobile application. This feature enables load management that could contribute to energy saving.
