Humans have increasingly been mobile in the recent years. Mobility has brought about rapid changes in a person's lifestyle.  A person may worry about his/her property every time he/she makes a travels. This has introduced a need for a person to remotely access certain devices in his house. This paper presents a design of a Field Programmable Gate Array(FPGA) based remote home control system. The user controls selected devices of his home from a remote location using the telephone line. After execution, the system sends a message back to the user through Short Message Service (SMS) to confirm a successful operation.
