I want to use an Arduino and a touch display to control a standard US 120volt residential power line. I also want to incorporate a smartthing protocol on it. https://shop.smartthings.com/#!/products/smartthings-shield-arduino
I would like to find someone in the Chicago-Land area so that we can collaborate closer but I am open to other options. I'm just looking for a rough prototype to start with and there will be more refinement of the project in the future. If you are willing to help me learn during the project, I'd pay a premium for that.
