We have designed a system which acts as power saver cum temperature display. It provides power to the fan and works only when somebody is in the room. In the absence of persons in the room, power is turned off and fan stops rotating. In addition, when somebody is in the room it will display the temperature and set the fan speed based on the temperature. The higher the temperature the higher the speed of the fan. The study details the design procedure along with construction and test information. A block of the entire power saver has been done. The block shows connections of the different modules. PCB design and testing of the entire system is analyzed.
