This paper addresses the problem of automation of electrical appliances with the use of sensors. The proposed method uses Viola-Jones method a real time face detection algorithm for controlling the electrical appliances which are part of our day to day life. A detector is initialized by Viola-Jones based face detection algorithm automatically without the need for any manual intervention. After initializing the detector, the position where the face detected is computed. The region captured by the camera is split into four different regions. Based on the position of the detected face the electrical appliances subjected to that particular region can be controlled.
