This paper depicts a unique home automation system where its efficiency and accuracy can be improved by integrating the PIR motion sensor and google voice assistant. It comprises of Node MCU (esp8266) which is a Wi-Fi module used to transmit data over internet, electromagnetic relays, and the PIR sensor. This developed system works when there is any motion within the defined sensor range and it can also be controlled through the mobile application. Blynk application has been configured with the system so that it works flawlessly on both iOS and android devices. The developed microcontroller has been configured with the Blynk server which makes the home appliances work remotely and eliminates the need for a dedicated PC server. The final prototype is also configured with google assistant so that the relays can be triggered with the voice too and this system has been successfully developed, and the working prototype has been tested with various test cases.
