Smart homes have become more popular now-a-days. They can have great benefits for energy, comfort and conveniences and even for helping impoverished people. This paper introduces a home automation system[HAS] based on internet of things. IOT is the emerging technology which uses internet protocols to control and manage the home appliances easily from anywhere around the world. In this paper we make use of Raspberry pi2 that acts as a server to get and post status of our home remotely by the use of android phones and computers that have internet accessibility. This system implements wireless communication, which is easier for the user to control lights, fans and other appliances of our home even when we are far away from home. This system is designed for effective usage of power consumption not only by controlling fans and lights but also other appliances as the hardware module Raspberry pi2 is extended to connect more number of devices to it.
