PIR Motion sensor
LCD Module
LED Light
Raspberry Pi Camera
Micro Servo Motor
Double Ended Wires (20)

The issues that our product is trying to address are manual light controls, indoor temperature control, and energy efficiency. We focused on the amount of energy that the average home uses, and we wanted to find ways to reduce energy usage. Lights being left on and unnecessary thermostat temperatures account for very high unnecessary energy usage. The light will be motion activated to where they shut off when a room is vacant, and the thermostat adjusts to a environmentally efficient temperature based on the reading of the outdoor temperature.”
