Home Automation Projects

Simple Home Automation for BeginnersAndroid/Arduino for switching things on and off (Absolutely No coding or soldering required)

Automatic LightsTurns light on, if it is dark, when anyone enters and off when they leave. Suitable for beginners.

BLE Window/Door Open Detector and Rain Detector Sound Alarm if there is a window open when it starts raining. There is an Hydreon RG-9 version also.

BLE High Power Light Switch -- 2023 Retrofit existing switch with Android control.
This project supersedes all these previous BLE light switch projects:- BLE Led Light Switch – 2023, Remote Controlled Light Switch – 2017, BLE Power Control with pfodApp

Auto Night Lights Lights turn on at Dusk and off at Dawn using an external BLE ambient light sensor.

ESP-01 Time SwitchSimple construction of a Power Timer. Suitable for beginners. Turns low voltage devices on/off at set times during the day. Keeps accurate time and handles time zones and daylight saving changes without re-programming. Uses web pages instead of pfodApp. Also see Water Pump Control using this Timer Switch

BLE Room Temperature controlled Heater with Timer SwitchCombines 4 existing projects to measure the room temperature with a remove BLE temperature sensor and control a heater during the times set by the NTP Timer Switch

IoTaWatt Real Time Electricity Cost and Reprogramming with Arduino IDEShows how to program IoTaWatt using Arduino IDE and remove any WiFi settings and how to plot the Electricity cost in real time.

ESP8266 Controlled Garage Diesel HeaterA truck diesel heater for the garage with WiFi remote control and fuel/air flow/air temperature monitoring.

ESP8266 AutoLocking DoorControlled and monitored by pfodApp

Wifi IR RemoteAndroid controlled (via Wifi) Customizable IR Remote Replacement. Handles multiple devices with customizable screen display and IR recording function.

Long Life Battery Powered RemoteOn/Off remote via WiFi, Bluetooth Classic, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Radio/LoRa or SMS

LoRa/Radio Long Range Garage Door ControllerA point-to-point LoRa in-car remote control and garage door receiver. 128bit security and indication the door has reached the required position. The door can also be controlled from your Android mobile, via a WiFi to Radio bridge, with a visual display of the door's position

Simple WiFi to BLE BridgeProvides WiFi connection to your BLE projects

How to Add Relays to Arduino

Remote Controlled Light Switch - 2017 This has been superseded by BLE Light Switch - 2023

Remote Controlled High Power Loads Retrofit existing switch with Android control for kilowatt loads

Retrofitted Fan Timerwith override off and settable time

Retrofit House Lights with WiFi control - Keep existing switches. Uses ESP8266 and pfodApp (No Android programming required)

Simple, Secure, Internet Power Switch with Manual OverrideIoT Extension Cable Inline Switch, Android controlled by pfodApp (No Android programming required)

AC Power/Light Switch MonitorOptically Isolated Monitor for Power/Light Switch

Connecting DIY IoT devices to the Internet with pfodAppHow to connect at home and away using the same Connection

WiFi/Internet controlled Dual Power Switch (deprecated use the Simple, Secure, Internet Power Switch with Manual Override project instead)
