Control Your Christmas Lights With Text Messages And Arduino

NewImage

Use Arduino to control your christmas lights with text messages. via instructables

I really wanted to be able to control my Christmas lights remotely, with an Arduino.

With this solution you can control my Lights remotely, via text messages!

Skills needed:

Soldering
Wiring
Copy and Paste

Components Needed:

An Arduino Yun (Wifi Enabled!) – You could use another Arduino with a Wifi Shield though.
A Protoshield with (or without) a tiny breadboard
a regular breadboard will work as well, but will be less compact.
If you want to solder more, you can just use a small circuit board instead.
A 5V relay
A piezo buzzer
Wires
A battery operated Christmas decoration (It’s not even Thanksgiving, so I’m using a Halloween decoration)
A Temboo account (explained in next steps)
A Twilio account
