Abstract: This paper is aimed at defining the process of automating the operation of electronic devices, in this case, street lights of a certain campus or area where there is a reliable network connection. This is achieved by using a microcontroller to control the target electronic device wirelessly instead of operating the electronic device manually and a relay to electromagnetically provide the functioning of a switch and also use a step-down converter to regulate voltage and convert it from 220v AC to 5v DC. The microcontroller used is the ESP8266 (NodeMCU) as this microcontroller has inbuilt Wi-Fi module that can suffice connecting to a network helping us in reaching the goal of wirelessly operating electronic devices. This is a step in the direction of a smart world where internet of things is the way of communication between all electronic devices and efficient utilization of this system saves a lot of energy and there will be lesser need of human intervention. This is an efficient step in the right direction of digitizing routine tasks and have much more control over them as opposed to being present physically near the electronic device.
