I'm new to this whole field and was wondering if anyone has any guides, or examples on controlling a lamp with an Arduino. The idea I have in my head is something like this:
Wall Outlet => Arduino => Lamp
(Of course my computer would be connected to the Arduino)
I know there will be a relay system of some sort, but i'm not sure where to go from there. Basically what I want to accomplish is a way for me to control lights from my computer (Eventually my iPhone & iPad)
Does anyone have any ideas on accomplishing such a task? I've searched around the internet and only found tutorials on controller a small LED diode. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be superb!
