the technological advancements in the field of Automation has aided our everyday life with comfort and ease. The exponential increase in the number of internet users over the past decade has made the Internet an integral part of life, IoT being the latest emerging technology. Internet of Things can be regarded as a network of everyday objects, from industrial machine to consumer goods that can share information and complete tasks while a person is busy in other activities. Home Automation and Surveillance System using IoT uses computer, mobile devices and dedicated android applications to control basic home functions and features using internet. An automated home is also called a Smart Home. It is meant to save electric power and human energy. By means of an internet connection, home automation system allows the user to operate it from anywhere around the world, this makes it different from the other existing systems. In this paper we present a Home Automation and Surveillance System using Arduino board that employs the integration of Server Centralized Database, wireless communication that provides remote control over various domestic appliances and storage of the data in the server. Use of different sensors contributes in improvement of security. This system is designed to be cost efficientand is also expandable since it allows a large variety of devices to be controlled.
