The economic growth of developing countries leads to a huge increase of energy use in buildings in large campus like universities and schools. A major source of high electricity consumption is careless usage of electricity. In most cases, building appliances systems run on fixed schedules and do not employ any control system based on detailed occupancy information. This paper presents the design and deployment of occupancy detection platform that can be used for accurate occupancy detection and electrical appliances such as lights, fans, air conditioners are controlled by considering the occupancy information and weather conditions.
