The research paper discusses a microcontroller based building automation system for real time monitoring and control for a standard three-bedroom unit. Standard buildings designed and built in Nigeria are without any form of automation and with emerging technologies that support automation of certain sections/processes in buildings the intelligent building paradigm can be a realizable objective. This paper thus proposed a microcontroller based design interfaced with appropriate sensors, actuators and voice recognition abilities to develop a building automation system (BAS) that could open/ close two doors, three windows and turn-on a light bulb with the detection of appropriate control signals with the flexibility of leaving room for future improvement increased complexity.
