(Step S14 of Fig. 3)

At this time, the microprocessor 30 determines whether the transmitted signal has selected "ON" or "OFF". If it is determined that "ON" is selected here, the selected controllers EC1, EC2, ... And ECn are switched to " ON ", and if it is determined that " OFF " is selected, the selected controllers (EC1, EC2, ..., ECn) are switched to " OFF " (Step S15, S16, S17, S18 of Fig. 3)

That is, when it is determined that the "ON" button is selected, the microprocessor 30 advances to the controller selected by the microcontroller 72 via the serial controller 64 via the serial communication unit 74 of the home controller 70. The assigned code value and the status value according to ON / OFF are transmitted, and the microcontroller 72 transmits the code value and output port (OP1, OP2, ..., OPn) for the controllers (EC1, EC2, ..., ECn). Investigate the 1: 1 correspondence with the output port (OP1, OP2, ..., OPn) and output the high-level voltage when it is "ON", and output the low-level voltage when it is "OFF" The relays RY1, RY2, ..., RYn are excited or unexcited by the transistors TR1, TR2, ..., TRn constituting the switching circuit unit 300, respectively. The control unit (EC1, EC2, ..., ECn) is ON / OFF by interrupting the power supply AC passing through.

Then, the controllers EC1, EC2, ..., ECn are switched to the "ON" or "OFF" state, and then the mobile communication server 82 selects the controllers EC1, which are selected through the screen of the mobile communication terminal 84. The mode selection for reserving the time when the operation of EC2, ..., ECn can be stopped is assigned to an arbitrary key, and when there is an input of the reservation time, it is transmitted to the Internet television 200 and transmitted to the data storage unit ( 34). (Step S19, S20, S21 in Fig. 3)

Then, the microprocessor 30 on the Internet television 200 receives the controllers EC1, EC2, ..., ECn, which are currently in the "ON" state, from the microcontroller 72 in the form of code values, and the timer 37 If the current time is received and the reservation time set in the controllers EC1, EC2, ..., ECn in the "ON" state is determined to be equal to or exceed the current time, the microcontroller 72 responds. A command is made to "turn off" the controllers EC1, EC2, ..., ECn to stop the operation of the controllers EC1, EC2, ..., ECn. (Step S22, S23, S24 of Fig. 3)

In addition, in the case of controlling indoor control devices EC1, EC2, ..., ECn remotely through the wireless keyboard 55 or the remote controller 56 indoors, the keys provided in the wireless keyboard 55 or the remote controller 56 are controlled.
