Simple Home Automation for Beginners – Android/Arduino for switching things on and off (Absolutely No coding or soldering required)
High Power Light Switch -- 2023 –
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 Switch – Simple 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
BLE Room Temperature controlled Heater with Timer Switch – Combines 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
ESP8266 Controlled Garage Diesel Heater – A truck diesel heater for the garage with WiFi remote control and fuel/air flow/air temperature monitoring.
ESP8266 AutoLocking Door – Controlled and monitored by pfodApp
Wifi IR Remote – Android controlled (via Wifi) Customizable IR Remote Replacement. Handles multiple devices with customizable screen display and IR recording function.
Long Life Battery Powered Remote – On/Off remote via WiFi, Bluetooth Classic, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Radio/LoRa or SMS
LoRa/Radio Long Range Garage Door Controller – A 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 Bridge – Provides 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Remote Controlled Light Switch - 2017 – This has been superseded by BLE Light Switch - 2023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 Timer – with override off and settable time
Retrofit House Lights with WiFi control - Keep existing switches. Uses ESP8266 and pfodApp (No Android programming required)
