PowerSwitch Tail II is “the easiest way to control an AC device with an Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, or any other DIY controller (powerswitchtail.com).” “Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects (arduino.cc).” By controlling your PowerSwitch Tail II with your Arduino Uno via Octoblu’s IoT platform, it is easy to make powerful projects in a matter of seconds. You could create a siren that goes off whenever you receive a follower on Twitter or a switch that turns your TV off at night in case you fall asleep! Your imagination is the only real limit.
