This paper exhibits a minimal effort and adaptable home control and checking framework for getting to and controlling gadgets and machines remotely utilizing Android-based smart telephone application. The depiction about the incorporated system architecture and the interconnecting instruments for the solid estimation of parameters by smart sensors and transmission of information by means of web is being exhibited. Home automation or smart home involves the control and computerization of lighting, aerating and cooling, warming, ventilation, and security as well as home appliances. It uses Bluetooth for remote checking and is a component of the Internet of things. The system will be operated on two modes, autonomous and semi-autonomous. To show the plausibility and viability of this framework, gadgets, for example, light switches, control plug, temperature sensor, and humidity sensor, have been coordinated with the proposed home control framework. The framework will consist of an exhaust, water tank, and an LED bulb. The exhaust can be used in kitchen/washroom and work accordingly. Water management is an area of field which needs a thought to work on especially, in India. For this, we will be using a motor which will automatically start when the water level reaches to its bare minimum and stops once the water level reaches to the brim. This will help in conservation of water. The third appliance used is an LED bulb which will start to glow if someone enters a room and stops glowing once the person exits.
