Step 1:

It was two years ago when I decided to try using an Arduino Uno microcontroller to replace my individual Lux WIN100 Heating & Cooling Programmable Outlet Thermostat. These outlets control an appliance, such as a small heater or, in this case, a ventilation fan. A device that is plugged into the outlet turns on and off the appliance by using temperature settings that you manually program into each device. This technique for controlling the ventilation fans is effective, yet uses several extension cords. The temperature outlet controllers use old-fashioned relays to switch the state of the device. My initial attempt was to hack an extension box inserting my own relays into it and connecting them to the Arduino Uno. It wasn’t very long before there was a mess of wires with lots of connector nuts and I was left feeling discouraged.

You (and it) are genius!
Oh you, stop! ;-)
<p>fabulous work </p>
<p>Hello! Is there a photo of the final 'thing' somewhere?</p>
Hi, Thanks for the question!!<br>Step 7, is a picture of the complete set and here is a picture from the Portland Mini Maker Faire of the mini demo tent:
