Abstract

This document presents the results of an X10 protocol implementation using the Short Messaging System (SMS) and shows how can they work together in order to provide a home system control for remote controlling electric home devices. The protocol X10 and the architecture of a SMS system are discussed yielding to a practical implementation for a home system control using the Nokia SDK Beta 3.0 development kit. Results gathered from the experiment are shown and conclusions are delivered emphasizing the advantages and drawbacks from the proposed implementation. Further, it is shown that the application runs independently of the cellular technology used on the network.
