The paper presents a cost effective approach to control home appliances such as light, fan, heater, washing machine, motor, etc over the Internet. The appliances are connected to the server machine and can be controlled over the Internet using a web browser on a desktop PC, Laptop computer or PDA. The parallel port is used to transfer data from server computer to particular device to be controlled. An interface device is designed to connect the high power loads to the parallel port. The developed web user interface allows the user to control home appliances directly or by using Schedule option. We have developed a system, by which it is possible to properly control eight appliances remotely through Internet.
