Modern hall and conference architectures have large entries and so manually opening of such doors every time a person enters can be hectic. In the present project we try to automate opening of door and also automate operation of power devices inside the room. This is small step towards smart houses. As the person appears in front of the door, the doors open automatic. However the door will be operated by geared system driven by powerful motor. And so actually operation of motor is automated. Similarly as a person approaches door from inside, again the door opens automatically. Further the based on presence of person in the room, the operation of room power devices is controlled. The primary sensor here happens to be PIR motion sensor.

1. System Architecture

Modular Design is throughout the system. System is built on the embedded system built around atmega8, cheap and powerful. Two PIR motion sensors are placed at the door step as shown below. Sensor number 1 is placed outside the door and Sensor number 2 is placed inside but near to door. Such double pair arrangement is used to confirm whether people are entering or leaving the room. If sensor1 is activated first and then after some time sensor2 is activated, it means person is entering in the room. The opposite of this is true for person leaving the room. Estimation of the same done by programming the Atmega8 chip. The interface between TTL logic based controller and power device motor is done with the help of driver circuit.

in the form of heat emitted by anumber of bodies including people. the more infra-red radiation is emitted and the easier it is for a PIR sensor to detect. the PIR sensor will keep processing the changes in infra-red radiation and the lighting will stay on.2. When a person or other heat sourceenters any zone.1 PIR sensor module All PIR sensors detect changes in infra-red radiation. The bigger the body. In order for . Each zone is constantly monitored by the sensor. dogs or other small animals. This change is detected and processed by the sensor. cars and. The field of view is the area in which changes in infra-red radiation can be detected. Providing the heat source (person) continues to move in the field of view. the level of infra-red radiation in that zone increases. The construction of the PIR and the Fresnel Lens divide the field of view intoa number of zones both vertically and horizontally. the sensor will not detect any changes in infra-red radiation between the zones and the lights will go out after the ‘Time’ period is complete. If aperson stands still in the field of view or moves out of the detection area. SELECTION AND DESIGN OF HARDWARE 2. Thefield of view can alter with changes in temperature and the size of the heat source. as shown in the diagram overleaf. to a lesser extent. switching on the connected lighting and starting the in-built ‘Time’ process.

The detailled schematic is as below.2 Motor driver circuit The motor available is a 230volt motor which is to be operated by transistor based relay driver circuit. A 1 uF capacitor at the input of each stage is required to block the dc component in the signal. Build using 2 LM358 IC’s and IR pair along some basic components. giving the total amplification of about 10000. In the collector circuit of BC547 . Features: Suitable for remote applications Low cost Operates from 3 to 12 volts Less current drain Range 5-10 meters Applications: Detecting motion in 5-10 meter range. The actuating signal from controller is applied to the base of driver transistor BC547. The second stage further amplifies it making the arangement sensitive and long range.the sensor to most effectively detect changes in heat between zones.8k. The equation for calculating gain is: Gain=1+Rf/Ri In our case Rf=680k and Ri=6. Here any change in output voltage of IR photodiode is sensed and amplified by first stage of LM358 which is a dual OpAmp chip. thus gain=101. 2. they do not emit or radiate any energy or beams The PIR sensor built during project is very sensitive compared to some commertially available in the market at the same cost. The gain of each filter stage is set to 101. PIR sensors are passive devices. It can detect even a slight wave of hand in the range of 5-10 metres. it is advisable to walk across the zones not up or along a zone. Hence overall gain=10000.
