With the recent surge in Omicron cases, shipping may be slower than stated times. We are working to build, ship and respond to everything as quickly as possible. Please see all COVID-19 updates here. Thank you for your continued support.

  • I am also working on a very similar project using Arduino and Xbee, but my project is designed around being able to install everything behind an existing light switch (using a Pro Mini). Also, I'm using SSR's so existing lights don't have to be changed, and so it's not limited to lighting. I'm also designing a shield for controlling 120/240V devices that incorporates a PCB power supply to run the Arduino and everything connected to it (ex. Xbee shield) from the 120/240 supply. Great project Robert!

  • Could you use this to make a hand crank charger?

  • Agreed. I'd buy plenty of those.
