Dr. Anthony Deese, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering, presented a paper at the International Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS) in Seoul, South Korea. The paper is based on a senior project that students Brain Carrigan, Elliot Stein and Elie Klein designed in 2012. It examines the design and construction of a simple, yet effective circuit-based hardware solution to home automation. Emphasis is placed on cost-efficiency, ability to incorporate wide variety of loads (e.g. HVAC), minimal installation requirements, and user-friendly interfacing. This technology is becoming popular as homeowners desire easy access control over various electronics in their homes. Additionally, they speculate that this system will reduce power utility bills by 5% to 15%.
