Abstract: In this modern era, the Internet of Things plays an important role to make human life much easier and more convenient. Smart appliances have overtaken conventional appliances by improving efficiency, robustness, power consumption, connectivity. ‘Smart’ is associated with appliances which are interfaced with the Web. Thus, smart appliances are set forth to extend into every household these days. Smart appliances include Television, Dishwasher, Washing machine, Water purifier, Refrigerator. In this paper, we propose a methodology to make traditional Refrigerator smart. Smart Refrigerators help in food management by adding computational intelligence that involves the use of a microcontroller and various kinds of sensors to improve the functionality of the fridge. Using automation techniques, a cost-effective intelligence is added to the refrigerator. This smart fridge is user-friendly and enhances human life. The features that can be provided are numerous and mobile or web application is designed to prior control the fridge and application act as a connection between fridge and user. The smart refrigerator senses the shortage of items in it and upon granting access orders the item online or messages the grocery store to deliver the items. The smart module monitors temperature, humidity and uploads to cloud platform with real-time updates to the user.
