Smart Home-PC is a Home Automation workshop about controlling home appliances using PC. It needs a RS-232 driver to communicate with PC. RS-232 is a standard by which two serial devices communicate. RS-232 comes under single-ended data transmission. In this case, data is transmitted from PC to microcontroller & the connection is no longer than 50 feet. The Workshop begins with a brief overview on basic & digital electronics to help you recall the fundamentals and attain conceptualization about the stepping tools of robotics. It includes a detailed study structure, delivered & demonstrated live by our experts on "How to build a PC controlled home appliances system??".

Our main aim is to effectively impart the basic know-how of designing a PC based home appliances system and provide all the necessary tools to develop it. PC based home appliances system receives the control signals from the PC to turn-on and off home appliances. It can be further employed for wide range of application including Robot, Digital Notice Board, Motor Control, Wheel Chair Control, etc.

We at ABLab Solutions would get you closer to the basic Home Automation domain right from the fundamentals to its implementation to successfully control home appliances using PC.
