Smart Home Models are used to monitor and control home appliances through various methods, such as ZigBee, Bluetooth, and SMS. With the rapid growth of technology, the smart home model based on the Android application is designed using Android Smartphones. The smart home model will be able to ease the effort of physically challenged individuals in controlling their home appliances, such as lamps, fan, and Television. Simulation method in this research paper is done by Proteus simulator and Android Software (IDE). This paper presents a survey of all the existing systems and studies their features. This paper also shows how to simulate the smart home model using Arduino Uno.
