Mobile devices have been integrated into our everyday life. Consequently, home automation and security are becoming increasingly prominent features on mobile devices. In this paper, we have developed a security system that interfaces with an Android mobile device. The mobile device and security system communicate via Bluetooth because a short-range-only communications system was desired. The mobile application can be loaded onto any compatible device, and once loaded, interface with the security system. Commands to lock, unlock, or check the status of the door to which the security system is installed can be sent quickly from the mobile device via a simple, easy to use GUI. The security system then acts on these commands, taking the appropriate action and sending a confirmation back to the mobile device. The security system can also tell the user if the door is open. The door also incorporates a traditional lock and key interface in case the user loses the mobile device.
