HVAC Monitor Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology

This project involved making a S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) Thermostat which could be accessible over the internet. This project combines several elements of embedded electronics, all while keeping on the theme of Home Automation. This page is a quick overview of the project; full documentation including EagleCAD board schematic & layout, as well as the Source code, can be found at the bottom of the page.

When designing this project, I wanted it to conform to these requirements:

  • Remote control and monitoring via Web
  • Upfront control and monitoring via LCD and pushbuttons
  • Remote Monitoring, Data Logging & Graphing“
