Recently, many researches and industries are developing smart home applications. In a smart home, electric devices (e.g., plugs, lights, TVs, and so on) can have the capability of wireless communications. Users are allowed to control these devices by smartphones through wireless links. However, we observe that the current control schemes are not user friendly. More specifically, users need to switch between APPs to control different kinds of controllable devices or need to traverse a long device list to find the target one. In this paper, we propose schemes to achieve the control fashion that when a user raises her smartphone to point to a device, the phone's screen automatically pops out on the control panel of the device, and then the user can enter control commands directly. In this paper, we evaluate the proposed schemes by simulations and real implementation, and the results demonstrate the effectiveness of our designs.
