It is very obvious that our main concern behind designing this system is the satisfaction of the user. The project is to develop a system, which uses mobile technology that keeps control of the various electronic devices or product, which executes with respect to the signal sent by mobile. The rapid growth of technology has significantly changed the living standards of modern society. Seeing the rising number of electronic devices being made in a household, an automated home control system has become a mounting helpful trait. Current systems, however, have problems with complexity, high costs, non-open sources and multiple incompatible standards. This project intends to design an open source, reasonably priced and way easy to use home automation system, which will be done by interfacing the open source Arduino microcontroller with laptop; creating a simple, easy-to-use system to manage home appliances. The project was carried out in quite a few stages. The Arduino is first setup for connection and laptop interfacing. Next, the system is made to work with appliances in a home model. Last of all, a simple user interface is created using some user friendly software to make the system user friendly, implementation of the home automation system design. The home automation system design was successfully implemented. Using little software on laptop connection was made to Arduino through wireless network, allowing for control of the appliances in the home model. In this paper we intend to describe a home automation system which uses speech commands uttered by a user to control various home appliances. This proposed system combines both the macros software for speech recognition visual studio and the Arduino micro-controller that is used to provide control signals to the relays, which will control various devices which are part of the home automation system. Nevertheless this project is simple but effective for every user who certainly have just two electronics device the mobile phone and the laptop itself. The rapidly advancing mobile communication technology and the decrease in costs make it possible to incorporate mobile technology into home automation systems. We propose a mobile-based home automation system that consists of a mobile phone with Java capabilities, a cellular modem, and a home server. The home appliances are controlled by the home server, which operates according to the user commands received from the mobile phone via SMS.
