Convenience, Comfort and Conservation are three undeniable products of Home Automation and Smart Home benefits. To this end, this work aimed to design, construct and implement a Cheap Air Conditional (AC) Automation System that schedules automatically when it should be ON or OFF based on the prevailing ambient temperature. Methods of Electrical/Electronic design and constructions were employed. The Sensor and Switching units were separately designed, constructed using electronic components and tested before and after casing. This system helps in making switching AC convenient for home owners/occupants by removing manual switching and at the same time improving comfort. Another benefit of this system is its ability to conserve energy by automatically switching off the AC when it senses it should not be on. It was evident - from the result- that this system can sense/detect the ambient temperature and switch on/off the AC.
