ABSTRACT

Projecting automation and control systems has been an increasingly important occupation for engineers since the beginning of the 20th Century. In our current era, the undeniable relevancy of automation in areas such as productivity, education and recreation acts as constant stimuli for draftsmen to keep conceiving new applications for computerized systems. Among these many uses, automation components acquire special significance when devoted to home security, since they should deal not simply with work rate boosts or enhancing entertainment options, but the protection of life and property. This article proposes an arrangement of electronic hardware to perform a simulation of the property’s owner presence in empty environments as a strategy to reduce the possibilities of home theft, once it is known that delinquents should feel strongly dissuaded to proceed with trespassing the area if they conclude that the said property is being inhabited.
