I fancy messing around with some led lights microcontroller stuff and I've always fancied being able to build a system where I can switch plug sockets on/off. I was thinking of using an Atmega to accomplish this. I believe I would have to use some relays to switch on/off a 240v AC source?
Can anyone point me in the right direction to information which could help me with this? If this was about switching a 5v DC source I'd quite happily get my teeth right in there but with this working with 240v I would be happier knowing I'm doing this safely. Any hints/tips/advice you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
nice thread sir... that's is the one that I want to ask....
good job your thread sir
