DTMF-controlled Home Appliance Switcher

DTMF-controlled Home Appliance Switcher
This circuit can be called using your mobile or a regular telephone set (with DTMF keys) and after passing some procedures, you can control DC-powered appliances installed in your home. Examples include the front door latch and the pump of a plant watering system.
You call the circuit and after three rings, it will answer your call and you will hear two little beeps.
