Mobile phones are widely used nowadays, for different application such as wireless control and monitoring due to its availability and ease of use. The implemented system is based on "global system mobile (GSM)" network by using "short message service (SMS)". The design mainly contains a GSM modem and Arduino Uno. In this work, the system will be described how to manage and control home appliances using mobile phone, people can use this system to do things in their home from a far place before they reach home. For instance, user may control/manage his/her home lighting, door or water pump which needed in daily life in different area (House, Office, or factory, etc.) when they are away from home. The user can check the condition in the home that light is on or off, door is locked or unlocked, water pump is on or off and so on. If the time taken for this appliances to perform a task is known that can also be set, so that if the time elapsed the appliance will automatically switch off itself. The control is done by sending a specific SMS messages from smart phone to a SIM900 and Arduino Uno which is connected to the appliance, once the message is received the SIM 900 will send the command to a microcontroller in Arduino for controlling the appliance appropriately. Also feedback status of three devices can be requested in designed system.
