Building an Arduino home automation controller

In his latest episode of, Freetronics co-founder Jonathan Oxer explains how to integrate physical device control using our Freetronics EtherTen board over your local-area network and a web browser.

Doing so is simple, with the use of our RELAY8 relay control shields it's easy to control many outputs with a single board - all of which make up a self-contained controller which is controlled via a web interface. From there you can control mains-rated relays for all sorts of home automation and control applications. To learn more about this, sit back and enjoy the latest episode below:

When putting together your next Internet-enabled Arduino project - save time, space and money with the Freetronics EtherTen. Apart from being fully Arduino Uno-compatible, it has onboard Ethernet, microSD socket, full USB interface (so you don't need a costly FTDI cable just to upload a sketch!) and supports optional Power-over-Ethernet.
