This paper presents several existing experimental setups on latest industrial systems and provide comparison of advantages and disadvantages of different HMI implementation. It proposes a simple and low cost HMI system for automation by using remote software application. The method does not required specific software package from vendors, hence provide a low cost and easily available solutions for control. We have examined their switching on various wireless technologies including Bluetooth, Infrared, Wi-Fi and Cellular Mobile Systems. The presented HMI provide effective and inexpensive control of automation systems by using remote software packages on the mobile phone, tablet and laptop. This paper presents several experiments on HMIs. The first set of experiments are related existing HMI systems on latest Siemens TIA Portal software and hardware. The second set of experiments presents the developed method of HMI switching and control by using remote communication software; Vectir and Teamviewer over different industrial wireless technologies.
