This paper describes implementation of GPRS and Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) technology in room monitoring application via mobile phone and webcam. The webcam, which is connected to a server, captures picture periodically. A mobile phone, which has GPRS feature and supports J2ME technology, is used to access the picture. Experiments were done using Nokia 3300 emulator in a local area network. The transfer rate time for a 36 KB picture is 0.9 second.The experiment's result shows that the system is only suitable for low frame rate room monitoring.
