Introduction: Household Relay Connected to Arduino

Picture of Household Relay Connected to Arduino

Finding the right relay may be troublesome and if chosen incorrectly can cause mishaps. Using an extension bar as a substitute to a relay is safer but must still be used under caution due to the use of high voltage. In this instructable we will use commonly used household materials to create a household relay connecting to an arduino.

You will need:
servo motor
extension bar with switch
long pieces of material (wood, metal..)
block of wood
elastic band
glue gun

*Disclaimer: Due to the involvement of high voltage I am not responsible for misuse or injury from this guide.

Step 1: Build First Structure

This is a very easy setup all you need is a block of material such as wood and glue gun it to the back of an extension bar

Step 2: Build Second Structure

Attach 2 long piece of wood with string at each end. the smaller length piece of wood is then attached to the servo motor.

Step 3: Last Build

Last step is to put both step 1 and 2 together using an elastic band. and the long piece of wood is glued to the switch of the extension bar
