    You can use a programmable SMS Controller.

    So your plan for your final project is to use a preexisting design?

    Some people define a project as what you design, then implement. Others just want to pass the course by building something that they didn't design. It's sad to say, these people usually get the credit.

    I am not aware of any such device. You can use X10 and the internet to control lights.

    It's pretty simple to do if you simply want a toggle like setup. Use something like a beeper or cell phone that rings when it is called, and have a micro wired to the speakers detect it and do it's thing. I've seen some projects involving reading the sms data off of a cell, have fun with that though... Maybe if you're a good programmer you could use an open source phone like openmoko and configure it to send the sms data to a port on the phone. I really have no idea though.

    EDIT: beenthere seems to have the best idea, simply use the internet on your phone to send data to a server, which could be your microcontroller.
