Home Security and Device Control Using Android Mobile

R. Selvarasu, S. Kishore Kumar, R. Arun Prakash


Nowadays the home security is essential to avoid unnecessary steal. The home security is accomplished by developing and implementing proto type device. It is functioned by Android mobile through Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) and employs an IR sensor to detect the unauthorized person entering into the home. In case an IR sensor detects a person then the keypad will be activated to enter the password and the SMS will be sent to the house owner for authentication based on the owner’s replay, the gate will open. The warning message will be sent to the owner in case   the person enters a password mistakenly. At the mean time buzzer will be activated.  Also the Android application is used to control the electrical appliances.


Android, GSM, Sensor, Stepper Motor.
