Make a quick and easy touch control, for your holiday lights with this Adafruit capacitive touch holiday light tutorial!
Switch your holiday lights on and off with a wave of your hand.
This simple project can be complete in an hour or two and requires no programming at all. It combines a PowerSwitch Tail II with a stand-alone capacitive touch sensor disguised as a holiday ornament. The large area of the cap-touch sensor makes it extra sensitive. You don’t need to actually touch it. It can sense your hand from an inch or more away.
