[Author: Jayson P. Allejos, Eugene Agapito, Wayne Marafina, 2013] This design project aimed to prove how a remote controlled AC outlet can be constructed using an android phone, PhilRobotics Anito Kit v1 using PIC16F877A (Anito Board), Bluetooth Shield, Isolated I/O Shield, and relay modules. This Anito – based Android phone controlled AC outlet is a control system that lets the user to power On or Off a socket (numbers 1 to 8) remotely using the android phone controller, and by merely using the ready-made manual switches corresponding to each of the socket. Upon successful pairing of Bluetooth devices, “1234” as the default pairing code, the user could then be able to control each or all of the sockets using the application installed in the android phone. Other may connect to the device, but they cannot control the sockets if the connection with the first android phone is still present. The user can control each or all of the sockets in whatever way he/she wishes to control. That is so because he/she may choose on the application to power On or Off one socket or all of the sockets by using (touching) a single button on the application. The load on
