Idea Name: Efficient Home
Slogan: energy for tomorrow
Startup Domain: Energy
Abstract:
    The key idea is to design system that remotely access appliances and optimize energy consumption. This can lead to a better grasp over energy crisis by better management of energy usage by end user.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Energy crisis is a major issue world is facing today.The solution doesn’t lie only in generating more power, but also in efficient use of existing energy.This can be achieved by automating appliances in a way that their energy consumption is regulated according to need and energy wastage is reduced.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Energy crisis is a global issue and the need of its solution is urgent. There's a total population of 200 billion in Pakistan, and electrical energy is the basic requirement needed from birth to death by every individual. Hence the market for this product is both residential as well commercial.
How will the solution works
    The system consists of a website that control and monitors connected loads. Hardware includes IR, LDR, Temperature & current sensors that help to operate loads efficiently. The LDR and IR sensors will sense the requirement of light and will accordingly turn off the unnecessary loads. The temperature and humidity sensors will help to control the HVAC loads to minimize the energy usage. All of them are connected to Raspberry Pi controller which operates the relay circuits as per given situation.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    the idea is based on IoT which is the center of research these days. A number of companies are working and automated products are there in market. But they focus more on automation than energy conservation. hence, the competitor is international market.
