This manuscript addresses the design and implementation of a practical home security system (PHSS). This system realizes its mobile surveillance via mobile phones by the planted Java applet. The challenge is that PHSS works independently under the existing Internet Service Providers (ISP) and telecoms. End-users can monitor their home and properties anywhere and anytime on the screen of their mobile phone. Furthermore, PHSS can be also applied to vehicle surveillance without the restrictions of ISPs. This system has been completed and verified in houses and vehicles.
