This study is deal with design, development and management of a smart home automation application using microcomputers and control cards. The automation system is designed and developed to be work universally for broad applications such as control of home appliances and systems of air conditioning, water, electricity and natural gas. In this study we put emphasis on the control of lighting system and motorized curtains. It is controlled manually by the user command on the web or determined the light intensity of the environment, and the lighting and curtain opening / closing control is performed automatically. In addition, the status of the lamp and the curtain are instantly recorded in the database. These records can be seen by connecting to the web application on the microcomputer with any web browser. Data logging, use of HTTP communication protocols, server design and web application development are the tasks utilized constituently. Local and internet based communication protocols are both employed. In the realization of application in the study, Internet of Things (IoT) architecture and the Open Platform Communications - Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) protocol to assemble IoT concept on industrial systems are utilized. As a result, a compact product has been produced that perform the expected functions, which has been used many software languages and hardware equipment.
