Costly solutions have been invented to resolve the issues of increasing electricity consumption and dead zones. Control of a device has also been a concern as temperature readings and security are important needs in every home or office. A solution is presented in order to meet with the needs of professionals in different organizations. An electrical socket is used as a medium to achieve the elimination of dead zones, monitor electrical usage, read temperature, and provide security and control of its functions. The system is made by attaching a microcontroller board to a socket with Wi-Fi extending capabilities, making each socket a hub for wireless connection. A central server gathers data from each socket and organizes them on a table, which can be accessed from a website and a mobile app.
Presented to the 12th Annual Symposium on Graduate Research and Scholarly Projects (GRASP) held at the Heskett Center, Wichita State University, April 29, 2016.
