    This thesis describes the development of a system for automatic and manual control of chicken farm equipment. The system uses a RPI (Raspberry Pi) computer, with a built in electronic circuit control and a web interface. The purpose of electronic wiring of components is for reading the water level, temperature and lighting control. This system contains several types of sensors, relay modules, some basic electronic components and a solenoid water valve. These components are connected to the RPI computer via GPIO (general purpose input output) pins. System status is constantly being logged into the database via the API (application programming interface). The RPI computer runs a script in Python programming language, which controls the components. The system provides automatic control based on pre-specified rules, which vary with the age of chickens. Manual control is also possible by changing the settings in the control panel, available to registered users.
