Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) is an active smart film that changes its opacity in response to an external voltage. The power consumption of the smart film is considerably small however, improper handling of the smart film such as not turning off the film after usage can lead to energy wastage. In this project, the design of a smart, low cost and efficient Internet of Things (IoT)smart controller for Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) switchable films with energy saving features based on Wi Fi is delineated. The implementation of the IoT features, NodeMCU, and environmental sensors enabled the smart film to be capable of switching automatically. In addition, voice command features were also incorporated into the controller. With the successful development of the IoT smart controller, the users can operate the switching of the PDLC films remotely.
