Abstract

Remote control based on mobile devices as mobile phones or PDA’s, is considered more and more useful in many computerised applications. This paper deals with the implementation of functions, based on mobile devices, for the remote control of commercial home automation systems. Different solutions are considered and some problems concerning their implementation are discussed. A preliminary development of the interface used to control X10 modules or to interrogate a home database of the device state is here described. Some guide-lines for the interface design are also reported.
