In modern days, we have to be in touch with various high-tech machineries and equipments to get our jobs done and make our lives easier. Too often these machineries serve very important purposes and sometimes require continuous monitoring. But it’s not always feasible to be physically near to the system. So, to be in touch with this sort of important systems by not being physically close, we need some sort of remote solution. The remote solution should unleash the restrictions due to physical distance yet provides enough reliability even from distance. Some products are commercially available which allow remote systems controlling through internet which is undoubtedly emerging; yet, it lacks the true sense of real mobility and security, making the remote system controlling a limited term than it is supposed to be. In search of true a remote and adequately secure solution to be really effective and practicable, which can be a better choice to mobile telephony? Mobile phones have become almost an inseparable part of civil lives today. In this paper we introduce the mechanism so that the ordinary services of the mobile phones can be leveraged to communicate with and control the remote systems.
