Abstract: This project describes the techniques for designing, implementing, and controlling a home automation system using FPGA through a wireless server. Home automation systems have fascinated considerable attention with the advancement of Future Home. Smart Home is an automated home system in that each device has sensors, actuators, and controllers connected through Wi-Fi so we can control them whether you're at home or miles away. It enhances comfort, automation, and safety. It also gives security for a better life quality for residents. We all know that many automation systems have evolved in recent years. Mostly home automation systems are built for short ranges using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GSM modules. The most important part of this project is to develop home automation using FPGA through a wireless server so that we can control the home appliances remotely. FPGA - Field Programmable Gate Array used for expanding the home automation in the future. By using the FPGA we can collect the data and control or access the digital-led switches. Mainly the proposed system aims to cover end-to-end Smart Home appliances using FPGA instead of microcontrollers. However, FPGA that acts as a processor and a controller is used to collect data and process it more efficiently in place of a microcontroller. The advantage of using FPGA is that we can extend it to various appliances for future needs.
