Subject: Proposal for Feasibility Study on Automation House-Controlling System
The purpose of my proposal is to request authorization and funding to study automation controlling system of security and appliances in houses by using GSM module, sensors and computing devices.
According to the statistic from the Department of Resources and Environment of Danang City, over 20,000 families live in multi-floor buildings. A survey indicates that 80% of the families are uncomfortable in going to all the room at night to check whether windows are closed, lights are off and monitor what is going on in each room. This poses an opportunity for thief to break into those houses. This problem is more and more critical because 75% house-breaking occur at night Moreover, we waste a lot of money when we are uncontrollable of the resources and devices in your house; that leads to a hard expenditure problem for all people every end of the month. Thus, Automation House-Controlling System is the best solution in this case.
I propose the system that drastically changes over the overall home control system by replacing the typical home security and home appliances control system by half automation system. The next most important objective is to provide a well-defined hardware and software framework to build a complete around this base. I also take care of the properties of easy installation and easy maintenance of the system. Next, I aim to build portable system which can be applied even in ordinary homes and accessed through GSM using smart phone and IR remote.
To perform this research and present a report on our findings, I estimate that we would require 600 hours over the next twelve weeks, for a total cost of $218.17. It is fact that your company, Smarthome is the world's largest home automation retailer, with thousands of affordable lighting, security, and home entertainment products that the average do-it-yourselfer can safely install. I trust you will give my proposal your full consideration. If you accept this proposal, we would begin immediately, submitting to you a progress report on November 1, 2013, and a completion report on January 27, 2013.

Automation House-Controlling System
As the world advances to the modern information age lot of automation has been introduced in various fields in order to maintain in time, secured and low cost services to meet the needs of the fast moving society. In this process on field that lacks behind is our home. Even though lot of highly technical advance electronics devices are introduce in recent years, the use of this sophisticated equipment are limited in the context of ours homes. The most critical bottleneck in automating ours house is seemed to be availability of integrated components and price of those equipment’s. So providing a solution that automates ours homes, we come with the idea of this project. I am seeking approval for funding to continue to study and construct our Automation House Controlling System. So far several efforts had been carried out to meet these particular objectives, but they have been ended up with failure due to lack of portable outputs products and their unreliability to use. The major concern should be on portability and easy to use. So the approach of this project is to build a system fully portable, so that anyone can install in their house without any difficulties, more user friendly interface and remote access to the system through latest technological advancement.
So the aim of the project is to remove the bottleneck of automating the home taking the correct approaches. The major feature of the solution will develop a portable unit. The Automation...
