Efficient energy management remains a challenge in university laboratories. The aim of this study is to develop and deploy an Internet of Things (IoT) system that can automatically adjust electronic devices to improve the efficiency of power consumption in the university laboratory. An advanced system is urgently needed to support sustainable and effective energy management. A smart IoT-based energy management system can improve energy efficiency, reduce operating costs, and reduce negative environmental impacts. The system enables both human and automated control of lighting and air conditioning using scheduling and occupancy detection. This development-based research uses a product design methodology that includes both software and hardware. The software product in this research is an IoT platform website for managing IoT devices. The essential processes include defining project goals and requirements, designing a system architecture, creating a user experience design, developing and integrating components, and conducting tests. The system is successful in automatically monitoring and controlling electronic devices based on certain parameters such as scheduling and presence detection. The system meets most of the specified functional and non-functional requirements as demonstrated in experiments, although it is somewhat limited by hardware limitations. Ultimately, the system increases the energy efficiency of the laboratory and thus successfully fulfills the research goal. This innovative project could be a blueprint for other smart energy control efforts.
