    hello guys
    can someone tell me what are the abilities of microcontroller??
    i have a thesis
    home Monitoring system via embedded web server
    i will use microcontroller as my server and control all appliances in house or hotel.
    i want to control appliances individually
    is this possible?
    thanks for those answer my question and i hope professionals here in forum help me.

    Yes, A PIC can have a USB or Ethernet interface connection, and up to dozens of I/O ports. Any of these I/O ports can run a relay if there is a transistor to boost the power to activate a relay.

    Light and temperature as well as sound sensors can be added using SPI enabled sensors which communicate digitally, or the more basic thermistor, using ADC to measure voltage to calculate temperature.

    There are more than a few PICs on the internet today that allow you to see the temp in the room, and the status of I/O ports, and the web interface lets you toggle an I/O port to turn an LED on.

    Microcontrollers have infinite applications you can say its everywhere around you.
