Abstract With the advent of technology the world around us is getting automated. Automatic systems are being favored over manual systems as they are energy efficient and minimize the need for tedious manual labor. With agriculture being the primary economic sector of India and other developing countries it is essential to automate it in order to increase efficiency. A typical farm requires a lot of labor. Automation can proficiently moderate the amount of manual labor and make farming easier and faster leading to more agricultural growth. The concept of automation is extended to the agricultural farms and farm houses. Numerous aspects of the farm are automated which include auto-irrigation cycles and secure temperature controlled enclosures for livestock and farm products. In our paper we implement automatic lighting system auto-sprinkler system in-house temperature control and security for farm houses. As temperature and motion sensitive devices will only work when required such a system conserves energy effectively. The paper also presents features to enhance the security of the farm. Energy efficient farm automation is the need of the hour in an agro-based economy.
