Control a Ceiling Fan with 315MHz RF, @Particle Photon, @IFTTT, and Amazon’s Alexa
File this one under ‘things to build this Winter in anticipation of next Summer!’
In this Instructables, we will use a Particle Photon (Arduino compatible) microcontroller coupled with a 315MHz RF Transmitter to send commands to a Harbor Breeze ceiling fan. We will then learn how to use an Amazon Echo and Alexa to activate our fan using voice commands. The ultimate goal is to be able to turn on the fan by saying: “Alexa, trigger fan on”.
