How to build a Simple Solar Powered Automatic Garden Light

For those who have a keen interest in gardening, a garden light would provide an option to admire the beauty of their plants even during the night time. These lights will normally be placed inside the garden, far from electrical outlets because it is not a good idea to run wires through your garden soil which will be wet and toiled most of the time. This is where Solar-powered garden lights come into the pi ...

Tv remote controlled home automation system

In this project, we are using IR based wireless communication for controlling home appliances. In this project, Arduino is used for controlling whole the process. We send some commands to the controlling system by using IR TV/DVD/MP3 remote for controlling AC home appliances. After receiving signal from IR remote, Arduino sends related signal to relays which are responsible for switching ON or OFF of the ho ...

Red Light for Astronomy Observing using PIC12F683

When doing astronomy observing at night preserving night vision is critical. This requires using the minimum amount of light that makes the sky charts readable. What is this minimum level depends on how dark are your surroundings, how much time you have spent in darkness, how well your eyes adapt for night vision, what type of charts are you using, what object are you observing, and so on. My old astronomy ...

COFFEE POWER MANAGER using PIC16F628

Introduction The problem was this...at Redeeming Grace Church we were meeting in a public school prior to moving in to our permanent facility. Each Sunday morning we would bring in three large percolating coffee pots to brew regular, decaf, and hot water for the mid-service break time. Each pot drew 9 amps. Because the average 120VAC power receptacle "outlet" in the USA is protected by a 20-amp breaker, thr ...

Smart doorbell System

Introduction On request I have built a microcontroller-based doorbell system which is being used in an industrial environment. This is the basic function: When you push the bell-button, a horn will sound for about 10 seconds. At the same time a light, which keeps burning until someone pushes a reset-button, will be activated. The system has a lot of features: There are 2 different lamp outputs: these can be ...
