Keywords:system, alert, application, servo, humidity
The Automatic Clothesline Retrieval System with Humidity Sensor is an innovation whereby the user’s clothesline will be retrieved and be pulled out when the system detects the change in surrounding weather. This Internet of Things (IoT) project was developed to resolve the problems of people too busy to retrieve their clothesline. The main objective of this project is to enhance and develop a prototype ACR system with Humidity sensor and application. The methodology used is the prototype model. Some of the hardware used are DHT22 Humidity Sensor and Micro Servo with connection to a laptop as its power source. The results from this project showed that the prototype acted accordingly with its respective surrounding’s humidity and light reading. After implementation, the ACR prototype system returned results of 100% success in achieving its objectives with minimal room for error. As for commercial value, this project has been successfully tested and can be commercialized to potential users, which are students. From the survey, 100% of the respondents are interested in the ACR prototype system. The contribution of this project is impactful to students or people who are busy by relieving their worries about their clothes outside, allowing them to focus on other important business.
