Chapter 1. Internet-Controlled PowerSwitch

For many years, people physically interacted with electrical appliances using hardware switches. Now that things have changed, thanks to the advances in technology and hardware, controlling a switch over the Internet without any form of physical interaction has become possible.

In this chapter, we will incrementally build a web server-enabled smart power switch that can be controlled through the Internet with a wired Internet connection. Let's move to Arduino's IoT (Internet of Things).

In this chapter, you will do the following:

  • Learn about Arduino UNO and Arduino Ethernet Shield basics
  • Learn how to connect a PowerSwitch Tail with Arduino UNO
  • Build a simple web server to handle client requests and control ...
