    • 5). Connect your smartphone to your computer using the USB cable or USB cradle that came with it. Install the software to your phone by syncing your phone and computer. If you have a cradle, you can just press the "Sync" button. If not, go to the "Start Menu," open your phone's software and go to "File" and "Synchronize Phone." After you have successfully finished the installation, disconnect your phone from the computer.

Launch the application, and you will see a list of appliances that you can control. Click on the appliance that you want and turn it to "On."
