Ok guys this Idea is good ok.
I have already designed the circuit using very few components ok, the whole circuit works, it counts people in and out of rooms, it automatically turns off the light when there is no-one in the room. I know that this design has already been done in hospitals and schools, but not in homes and the design wont be as simple and as cheap as mine.

This circuit is specifically designed to cut your electrical bills on lighting, i could connect a room up with this system for only

Answering too the first reply:
How many people forget to turn the light off when they leave the room?
Lots of people, this will save money.

Secondly, i have thought about intergrating the alarm and heating in with my system as well, so this will make it slightly different from the devices that just turn the light on and off in America.

It has been said that people waste 10% of the energy they use in there home because they leave the light on when the room isnt in use.

I have now encorporated my alarm into the system, so that when it see that there is no one left in the house, it sends a 2 second pulse to the set terminal of the alarm interface. This automatic alarm function can be turned off and on by a SPDT switch.
I have also designed the circuit to lower the house temperature by 2 degrees after a 5 minute delay, but i am having problems finding a input for temperature adjustment on the heating display.
Any Help with this Connection to the heating system problem would be nice?

Hi Azza,
My compact fluorescent light bulbs save me money on electricity and I turn them off when they aren't needed. Soon I will get "a smart meter" so I can save money by using high power appliances during "off peak" times when electricity costs much less.

My home here in Canada is heated with cheap natural gas. I have a programmable thermostat that turns down the heat at night to save money.
