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!
Copy and Paste
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
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
