Controlling electrical appliances over the internet is the next wave of networking technology. With the existing advancements in computing power and network technology, the concept of fully automated client and server device controller is not far fetched. This idea was instigated from some situation like this; when the author went to the office and suddenly realized that he forgot to turn off the lamp at his room at home. By using the client server device controller application, the author can connect to the home network and can check the status of all the lamps. If the room's lamp is on, then the author can switch it off This project will not only be applied to lamps but has been extended to control all the devices in the house or room from the fan, radio, television or whatever electrical appliances that can connect to the device controller. With the current advancements in computing power and network technology, the concept of fully automated more like smart homes can be achieved. In this project, it will describe how the author has simulated a client server device controller environment. The main control or interface for this project was developed using Visual Basic 6 and hook them up via a network. In this project also, the application is added with mobile integration ability where the device controller can be controlled by receiving the instruction message from the sender. Once these applications were run and once the devices got plugged in, it will announce their availability in the network. It will then automatically act as server and the client application of this client server device controller can be connected with proper access permissions. This project is a strong determined step towards delivering the notion of "Internet appliance" leading to ubiquitous computing.
