Use Raspberry Pi to make an internet controlled 8 channel powerstrip #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


NewImage

From instructables user rleddington:

Greetings, fellow Raspberry Pi enthusiasts. We are about to create a multi-purpose gadget that is sure to impress! My primary reason for building this to to control my Christmas lights, but that is only one of many possible uses. Basically you can plug in up to 8 appliance and turn them on and off independantly from your smart phone! If you want to setup port-forwarding on your wireless router, you can control your appliances from anywhere in the world. (Although why you would want to turn on your blender from over-seas is a bit of a mystery.) Please leave me a comment letting me know how you use your Web Controlled Powerstrip!

Before we get started, I want to give credit where credit is due: TheFreeElectron wrote an excellent instructable on controlling the Raspberry Pi GPIO pins from a web-browser. In fact, in-order to complete this instructable, you will need to follow almost all of the steps from his instructable including using his awesome web application for controlling your power-strip.

Secondly a reminder that working with mains power can be extremely dangerous. Please be very careful. Those of us that have had the experience of touching a live 120 volt wire do not EVER want to repeat the experience.
