This is possible with the concept of Internet of Things or iOT in which all electrical devices are interconnected with the common point being a mobile device. The application in the mobile then stores data from all these devices and then operates on a machine-to-machine strategy. In simpler terms, the IoT application in your device can instruct other devices how to act or when.
