Now a days it is very common to control Electrical Appliances and gadgets using switches and infrared remote. Now it is the time for new control system to replace the existing one. The main aim of his new system is to control the gadgets using finger movements and gestures. Home automation means to control and use the home appliances automatically. The proposed work consists of fast algorithm for identifying set of hand gestures using images. For this, algorithm based on MATLAB is used. It is a tool used for real time image processing by capturing an image using camera. The captured image of hand is processed using MATLAB and it is compared with preloaded gestures. If it is matched then data is sent to microcontroller hardware and the hardware sends signals to devices just same as the remote control does. This system can also be the best solution for the physically challenged and for the people who are not in the reach to switches. The common hardware devices include camera, PIC microcontroller, fan, light, power supply, LED, GSM module. This hardware module is communicated with simulation software using a USB to serial converter bus.
