Since we didn't do a Mobile Monday post we'll do one that also includes a Hardware Friday project! Marco Minerva, has written up a cool project that combines a Windows Phone app with some .Net Gadgeteer hacking...
In this post, I’ll show how to control a Relay module using a Windows Phone app that is able to remotely turn on or off a light.
Let’s start creating a new Gadgeteer application. Connect the following modules to a FEZ Spider Mainboard:
- USB ClientDP;
- WiFi RS21, to allow connections to the device;
- Multicolor LED, to indicate device status;
- OLED Display, to show the IP Address of the device;
- Relay (the most important), that allows to create a switch controlled by .NET Gadgeteer.
The resulting system is shown in the following screenshot.
From the hardware;
To the .Net Micro Framework code...
To the Windows Phone 7 code and app...
It's all there. If you click through and scroll to the bottom there's a download link for both projects too.
Okay, okay, this might be overkill, but it's a pretty cool overkill, you've got to admit!
