Abstract
Through technology, buildings are no longer just containers for life. With the large amount of data that can be accessed about everything from occupancy, to ambient room conditions and energy use, buildings are becoming smarter. Smart buildings offer new solutions to the problems of smart living. Unfortunately, most buildings in Africa fail to tap into the data that is provided by the ambient conditions inside them as well as the occupants residing in them. This project provides a smart building monitoring system that keeps track of the ambient conditions inside a building by the use of an Arduino powered module connected to sensors that transfers data via Bluetooth and makes further analyses on this data to improve comfortability and usability of occupants.
