Smart building is a place that provides smart services based on ambience factors and the dwellers needs to promote energy efficiency and at the same time emphasis more on health and comfort needs. The development of smart lighting in the building should be remotely controlled according to the suitability of the current occupants as well as surrounding factors such as area, total occupancy, room size and surrounding intensity. The development of smart lighting should also provide comfort to the populace as well as targeting power optimization based on its current demand. In this proposal, a prototype that develops smart lighting is proposed. In this proposal, the lights will be ON if human existence is detected and vice versa. Lights switching ON rates are also increased by the increase of occupancy and decreasing otherwise. Hence power energy can be optimized whereby it also reduces excessive release of greenhouse gasses. Some tests for the capability of the prototypes developed towards the current needs of the building have been carried out, and giving significance results.
