Google Assistant Home Automation
Google Assistant Home Automation using Raspberry Pi – This paper presents the development of a smart home using Google assistant. The idea behind this is to control home devices with voice. On the market, there are many devices available to do that. But making your own is awesome. Build your personal assistant that will do the work for you. Just your assistant requires voice commands. In this project single-board computer i.e. Raspberry pi, 3 is used which includes creating an Adafruit account then linking to the IFTTT website, and adding to Google Assistant for voice commands. In this home automation appliances like bulbs, Cooling Fan, and Motor are used which can be controlled easily using Google assistance from the voice control. Here we will install Google assistance in the raspberry pi and Raspberry pi will be attached with a mike that takes all the voice commands through which it will automatically control the home alliances. As the user give the voice command to the mike that the home appliances can be switched ON/OFF accordingly?
The idea behind this is to control home devices with voice. On the market, there are many devices available to do that. But making your own is awesome. Build your personal assistant that will do the work for you. Just your assistant requires voice commands. According to voice commands home appliances will switch ON/OFF.
In the existing system, IOT i.e. IEEE 802.11 b/g/n is used in order to control the home appliances where the home appliances are remotely controlled using web page buttons, where we have to go to the particular link and from there we can press buttons in order to control the home appliance.
In this proposed system, Raspberry pi is installed with an Adafruit account with the IFTTT website and then added to Google Assistant for voice commands. A USB Mike is provided with the raspberry pi to give the voice commands to control the home appliances.
BLOCK DIAGRAM EXPLANATION
- In this project USB, Mike is used to taking the voice commands.
- Raspberry pi is linked with the Adafruit account with the IFTTT website which is connected to the Google assistance cloud.
- Home appliances like BULB, FAN, and MOTOR are connected to the Raspberry pi.
- Connect power supply for Raspberry pi
- Plug the HDMI cable in Raspberry pi from the monitor using VGA to HDMI converter cable
- Connect USB Mouse and USB keyboard to the Raspberry pi
- Raspberry Pi
- USB MIKE
- SD card
- Raspbian Jessie
- Google assistance.
- Language: Linux
According to this system, a smart voice control home automation system is deployed into the Raspberry pi using the Adafruit account with the IFTTT website and Google assistance API within it. Through which a user can control the home appliances just by giving the voice as input.
