Control a WeMo Switch with Arduino
The author explains:
Belkin’s WeMo Switch is a cool way of controlling almost any AC mains device from the comfort of your smartphone. The switch has a simple built-in Wi-Fi server and hooks into your wireless home network, allowing you to control its on/off state via an Android or iOS app.
Electrically, it’s got some serious grunt, too, able to control loads of up to 2,400-watts (as much as you can put on a single-phase AC mains socket in most Australian homes).
But you can also control the WeMo Switch with an Arduino. Take an Arduino Uno microcontroller board, add an Ethernet Shield, two wires and a momentary push-button switch, plus our source code and you’ve got everything you need to build an Arduino Power Switch.
