Abstract: Now-a-days, automation is playing significant role using android phone in human life, particularly, handicapped and senior citizens. Appliances automation allows users to control different appliances such as light, fan, fridge and AC. It also provides security system like door controlling, temperature & fire detection and water shower. Furthermore, security cameras are used to control and monitored by the users to observe activity around a house. It has been observed that the internet services in interior Sindh are not as much better as required. Hence, GSM SIM900A based android application is developed named Appliances Automation & Security Control System using Arduino. The developed system is decomposed into two separate entities: (1) hardware is designed and developed using Arduino (MEGA 2560) with other required electronics components which is programmed using embedded C language, (2) an Android app which provides freedom to user to control and access the electronic appliances and the security system without internet. The developed application is tested in Karachi, Sukkur and Khairpur with ZONG, Moblink, Telenor and Ufone. The acceptable results are achieved at Karachi and Sukkur but suitable results are not calculated at Khairpur in terms of delay due to the frequency of selected GSM Module.
