So, I have a plan to monitor the temperature in my home office and when it is outside of certain ranges turn on / off the mains power to a blow heater.
The temp sensor part is quite simple, but I'm confused as to how I can get a socket turned on / off.
Can anyone offer guidance? I'm pretty much a beginner with Arduino so I'd like to steer clear of things that need transistors or plugging too much in on the breadboard.
Is it possible to maybe have some sort of device that plugs in to the switch and can be activated over bluetooth or similar to turn it on or off?
Thanks for your help in advance.
Also it's an Uno I have.
