i got  a similar idea with the project on this link
http://www.open-electronics.org/ikea-sms-lamp-with-gsm-shield/
only that i would be controlling outlets..it would be similar to controlling a LED connected to the output pins of the arduino..if i text 1on..then the designated LED would turn on..when i text 1off..then it would be turn off.etc...in adition without my text it will be turning on in a specified time..also turn off in a specific time..hope you could help me sir..

Have you got that working so that you can turn a light on and off ?
