From the moment you walk in a room and turn on the light, how much energy is used? To solve this, an Arduino microcontroller will be used to automatically detect when a door is opened and track how much energy is being consumed from lighting the room. Utilizing Arduino and Node Red, the data that tracks the energy consumption will be sent to a virtualization platform where the data will be analyzed and displayed. This data will help limit the amount of wasted energy by only turning the light on when someone enters the room and turns the light off when they leave.
