The principal objective of this project is to gather information on weather condition in a room and then analyze this information to solve the problems of dampness, which remains one of the key challenges facing houses or apartments in various parts of the world. The project intends to develop an embedded system that helps to control the temperature in buildings. An accurate prediction of the temperatures at which humidity and pressure are in a perfect equilibrium. Since ventilation, room temperature, and humidity are the principal components of the environmental conditions in a room, an adequate control of these factors is expected to ensure that the issue of dampness is overcome by the buildings in which the system will be implemented. Thus, this document presents the specification requirements for the project, which highlight the ways in which it is expected to meet the intended objectives.

Project Scope
Even though this project intends to solve a very complex societal problem, it has a very simple scope that consists of three main phases. The first phase of the project involves the gathering of information about the temperatures, pressure and humidity fluctuations in a room. The phase involves using the Raspberry pi/Arduino uno to read and record the temperature, pressure, and humidity fluctuations in a room. The second phase employs the data collected from the first phase to conduct a study and determine the best temperatures at which dampness can be avoided in buildings. The final phase of the project displays the output from the phases above on a website. Ventilation has been suggested as one of the strategies through which this stage of the project can be implemented. Based on the results of the data analytics phase of the project, the ventilations of buildings and other determinants of overall humidity will be adjusted to ensure that such buildings are characterized by the most favorable equilibrium among these factors. Overall, the project implements its principal systems in three phases; the first two phases involves the gathering of data and using it to model the most appropriate setup for an ideal building, while the final phase uses this information to solve the problem of dampness in buildings.
