This paper presents the development of GSM-based control home appliances for smart home system. The main aim of the prototype development is to reduce electricity wastage. GSM module was used for receiving short message service (SMS) from user?셲 mobile phone that automatically enable the controller to take any further action such as to switch ON and OFF the home appliances such as light, air-conditioner etc. The system was integrated with microcontroller and GSM network interface using assembly language. MPLAB software was utilized to accomplish the integration. The system is activated when user sends the SMS to controller at home. Upon receiving the SMS command, the microcontroller unit then automatically controls the electrical home appliances by switching ON or OFF the device according to the user order. In other word, it read message from the mobile phone and response to control the devices according to the received message. The prototype has been successfully developed and it could provide an effective mechanism in utilizing the energy source efficiently.
