Remote Monitoring and Control of A Refrigerator Using GSM Interface.
The problem of food items getting spoilt in the refrigerator has limited its power of preservation and thereby increasing the problem of food spoilage and wastage in the community.
This project provides a solution to the problem and saving food items from getting spoilt in the refrigerator due the harsh unfriendly temperature food items in the refrigerator undergo while they are been kept there. The project aims at monitoring and controlling the temperature of the refrigerator with the aid of short message service (SMS) through the use of temperature sensor that will continuously check the current temperature of the refrigerator chambers and sends an SMS to a GSM module whenever the temperature crosses a set threshold.
The system is controlled by arduino microcontroller will inform the user on the condition of the refrigerator temperature for the user to take further action in other to save the items in it from getting spoilt. The end result after testing the project is a system that could remotely monitor and control a refrigerator unit according to system specification.
The technology regarding controlling devices and circuits is developing at a faster pace day-by-day. This project has applications similar to the controlling devices. So, in the model, Arduino circuit is the main component which could serve in the functioning of the program designed.
Up to date, at many places, the refrigerator management is very poor. There are a lot of failures in the development of refrigerator temperature management techniques. So in overcoming these drawbacks, a simple circuit (prototype) which is even economical was developed.
Many centuries ago, geographical barriers were limiting factors to various functionalities of Remote Monitoring and Controlling devices which are now seemingly easy in modern times. These devices are what we see, feel, use every day in our modern world today. Dynamics and advancement in technology has broken down these barriers and today Remote Monitoring and Controlled devices are now at our finger tips.
The Remote Monitoring and Controlling of controllable devices is provided by sending control information to and receiving status information from information appliances over a network. A user is able to monitor and control the information appliances from a remote location. The Remote Monitoring and Control can be facilitated by graphical user interfaces.
