Project Description 

AutoHome started as a project of two friends when we tried to design a home automation solution during summer vacation. Our main motto was to design a system that could integrate with smart and traditional devices. The main problem we found with current home automation solutions is that they are platform-dependent and they cannot integrate with traditional devices. So, what can we do? It is not practical to buy a new refrigerator just to be able to control it through cell phone. Hence, we decided to design our own system that could integrate with any devices seamlessly and is also platform-independent. The child of that thought is AutoHome, a smart router with a mobile app. We are currently working on incorporating different features and improve web app integration.
