The remote control and media sharing of consumer devices are key services for smart living. The involving of mobile devices into these services has become a technology trend. Existing solutions to these services restrict these devices to be located in the same local network. In this paper, we design and implement an integrated architecture that supports the outdoor remote control to home devices and the sharing of digital media among indoor and outdoor devices. By following the digital home related standards, we show our system design with the details of hardware and software components.
