    Abstract :

    Hand gesture recognition systems were developed with applications in fields of sign language recognition, driver assistance, smart environments, video games, medical instrumentation, and other human-computer interfaces. Hand gesture recognition systems commonly use depth information for background removal purposes using a Finger-Earth Mover’s Distance (FEMD) for recognizing static poses. In this paper we have proposed a smart drawer that makes home smarter. The main idea works in line with gesture recognition technique. User choice based additional security enhancement technique has been implemented by face recognition. Two different gestures are preinstalled for opening and closing the drawer. After matching the gesture, if security is enabled face recognition is required for opening the drawer. A small camera is installed at a particular place on the drawer in capturing mode .The camera gets continuous footage of actions near the drawer and as it has been designed for gesture recognition already so it try to match the capture gesture with the preinstall gesture and do accordingly.
