A Residual Current Device (RCD), is an actual existence sparing gadget which is intended to keep consumers from getting lethal electric shock if get in contact with something live, for example, an uncovered wire. It can likewise give some insurance against electrical flames. RCD offer a level of individual insurance that normal wires and circuit breakers can not give. This project is performed to design and build a Residual Current Detector Device (RCDD) using Global System for Mobile (GSM). This project is developed to implement two parts; send the Short Message Service (SMS) to the house owner when the RCDD trips (caused by lightning, short-circuit or overcurrent) and reset the RCDD switch to the normal condition by replying the message automatically. This application is very useful for those who are often going for outstation and to avoid something worse happens in the house. The PIC microcontroller is used for controlling the movement of the servo motor to pull back the lever of the RCDD switch when it tripped. When the RCDD switch tripped, the GSM modem will send the message to the house owner to inform about that condition. Then, the house owner needs to reply to the message and the PIC micro-controller will activate the servomotor to switch back the RCDD switch to the normal condition. In the wake of pulling in RCDD switch and home power supply come back to ordinary, the servomotor will turn around to permit the switch RCDD trip again when a short out happens once more.
