Electronic sustainability can be achieved using simple microcontrollers by saving energy, time, and manpower and safeguarding the resources from accidental or intentional loss. Implementation of such an electronic framework does not require huge investments or special skills but will save a lot on automating simple tasks basically micro-computers that can be programmed to control operations with endless day-to-day applications. Arduino microcontroller is used widely in making mini projects that can be effectively connected to systems for better electronic governance in libraries like avoiding theft, saving electricity, saving water, data streaming, live system allocation, automatic system shut down, scheduler, etc. Their applications can be broadened by our own creativity. Electronic components in the form of switches, buttons, sensors, etc. work as input devices. Motors, lights, buzzers, display boards, etc. can be used as visual and sound output devices. All the software is available from Arduino DLE free library, and the components are easily customizable and connectable.
