Wireless Home Control System
Reimagine your home ™
Wireless Home Control System (WHCS) is a solution for any homeowner to be able to remotely control core appliances of their home. WHCS allows the user to control lights, outlets, doors, and sensors around their home. The system’s design philosophy emphasizes ease of use, affordability, and effectiveness. An Android phone application developed for WHCS allows users to monitor the state of the installed components and activate them remotely. A central base station equipped with a touch-enabled LCD is present, allowing the users to interact with the system without the need of a phone. Peripheral control modules may be installed into targeted appliances such as lights, outlets, and doors for WHCS to control.
