Energy efficiency is a trending topic nowadays, the usage of energy in any kind of environments is vital to allow technology work around the world, Wi-Fi technology is already a deployed solution in most of this environments to allow users connect to the company network or internet in an efficient way. The energy efficiency on this environments can be achieved through different techniques, on this thesis, the proposal to accomplish this task will be by using Wi-Fi technology as a technology to enable presence control mechanism and be able to control different features inside a certain environment mostly inside offices. Information such as energy usage, quantity of users connected, time of connection or disconnection of a given user will be displayed on a graphical interface generated by a management software and it will be implemented inside a virtual machine. Also, this information will the basis to make decisions in order to control efficiently the energy used into the environment in which the access point is operating. To achieve this on this proposal an API will be developed, this API will extract information from the office access point via SNMP technology using specific OIDs (Object Identifier) from the MIB tree, this information will be analyzed inside the script to make a decision and send a value to the management software. Finally, the management software will save this information on a given database and it will display graphical information about the environment on which the monitoring of presence control were performed.
