the project is designed to operate an electric bell number of times as required in an institution. It overcomes the difficulties of switching the bell ON/OFF manually. This proposed has an inbuilt real time clock (RTC) to keep tracking the time and thus to switch ON/OFF the load accordingly.
The project uses a real time clock (RTC) interfaced to a microcontroller of 8051 family. While the set time equals to the real time, then microcontroller gives command to the corresponding relay to turn ON the bell and then another command to switch OFF as per the program.
Multiple ON/OFF time entry is the biggest advantage with this project. A matrix keypad helps entering the time. A 7-sement display is interfaced to the microcontroller to display time.
Further the project can be enhanced by interfacing a GSM modem to the existing project so that the complete control of the bell can be done by sending an SMS to the control unit.
