Control Your Light Switches from Your Phone

Ahmet Akif Kaya wanted to control the light switches in his house from his smartphone, so he built a system that incorporates an Arduino, Bluetooth module, and servo to do just that! The system has a working range of 30 meters (approximately 10 feet). It’s a nifty little device, and certainly cheaper to build than the smart devices you’ll find online.

Kaya’s build is also a little bit more accessible than your typical Maker Share project, as he publishes his work in both English and Turkish.


Jordan has spent much of his life writing about his many geeky pastimes. He's particularly passionate about indie game design and Japanese art, but loves interacting with creators from all walks of life.
