If you’re following my email/facebook updates you know I promised more tutorials related to Home Automation.
In this tutorial we’re going to control 2 lamps with an Arduino and an Ethernet Shield. If you have an Internet connection you can control those lamps from anywhere in the world.
Watch the Video below
First make sure you watch my youtube video above, where I explain the whole process in more detail.
- Arduino UNO – read Best Arduino Starter Kits
- 1x Ethernet Shield
- 1x 433Mhz Receiver and Transmitter
- 2x Remote Controlled Sockets with a Remote Control (Controlled by 433Mhz Frequency)
You can use the preceding links or go directly to MakerAdvisor.com/tools to find all the parts for your projects at the best price!
Go to Home Automation Server
Click here to go to HomeAutomationServer.com to create your free account and start editing your Dashboard with 2 new buttons. (for example: Button #1 – Desk Light and Button #2 – Desk Light)
Click here to Download the RCSwitch Library. Install it an Re-open the Arduino IDE. Then open the example “ReceiveDemo_Advanced”. Upload the code and open the serial monitor. Start pressing the buttons from the Remote you’re going to use and save them.
After you complete the transmitter circuit. Upload the Arduino code below. (Change the user_key and the if statments as shown during the video)
