CHAPTER 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction Modern technology has brought a huge impact on the walk of life of many people around the globe. Patterns of such progression in technology are gadgets like mobile phones and computers that make living an entire lot better than it had been before. The researchers chose to be occupied within the sector of Electronics. Many household items are now supplied with remote control handsets - all designed to encourage laziness! However, to adjust the room lighting it is usually still necessary to get up and do it manually. This is probably because the lighting was specified by the housebuilder, and most householders are understandably reluctant to alter it. Some single channel remote control dimmers are becoming available, but they are still rather expensive. The system described here allows up to four channels of lighting to be remotely controlled. It has been designed to be relatively inexpensive, without compromising safety and reliability. Such a system could be helpful for persons who cannot move as easily as they would like, such as the elderly or disabled. If necessary in individual cases, the remote handset may be housed in a larger box with suitable push buttons. The prototype was used as a stand-alone system, connected to table lamps and a desk fan. Ambitious constructors could consider incorporating the unit into the household wiring if they are satisfied that the installation will comply with the relevant wiring regulations.
