  • 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.
