Abstract

A smart office home system is a system that consists of control and management functions within a home environment intended for enhancing the living quality of its inhabitants through functions such as home appliances of four types based on its primary function, namely energy, security, entertainment, and health care. One of the most common applications of the smart home system is for energy management purposes, such as power monitoring and energy conservation. A curtain open/close controller. To achieve this, the NEMA 17 stepper motor is used as an actuator with the assistance of A4988 drivers. The motor is controlled using Arduino UNO which is chosen due to its low power consumption. The Arduino controls the direction of the motor by using a pulse width modulation logic signals emitted from input/output pins, meanwhile, the control is done by using the LDR sensor. Based on the curtain that can be controlled wirelessly through the Bluetooth module. The amount of the consumed power makes it suitable for low-power operation and in alignment with the smart Office and Home systems.
