About

The IoT Relay

Imagine:  A smart fish tank.  DIY home automation. Industrial control. Wireless remote lighting.  Home theater.  Security. This is the Internet of Things. You can build anything imaginable with an Arduino.  But how do you power real things -- like a coffee maker, lights or the heater for your 3-D printer? 

Enter the IoT relay...  an easy, affordable way to control the Internet of Things.   

Connect any micro or WiFi adapter. It's simple -- only two wires. The high-voltage stays inside the box.  Just hook it up and plug in.  You'll have the power to handle large appliances reliability.

Most of all it's priced right -- $19 + shipping.   Less than it would cost to scrounge imported parts online.

Help us launch. We'll ship yours in under 20 days!

Nerdy Tech Specs

  • Input 120VAC nominal 50/60Hz - recommended for the US only.
  • Relay type SPDT (NO and NC outlets)
  • Rated current 12 Amps continuous, 15A peak.
  • Contact rating 30/40 Amps (over-designed for durability)
  • Universal control voltage 3.3V to 60VDC or 12-120V AC
  • Minimum lifetime 500,000 operations at full load
  • Safety: optical isolation, hardware de-bounce & thermal circuit breaker

Risks and challenges

The design is done. We can build these. We have most of the parts. But we need your help to launch. In exchange, we'll bust-ass and get these out on time. Other risks?

1. Our boss may croak from high blood pressure -- he could stand to lose some weight.

2. Fed-Ex may blow a tire carrying all those relays.

3. European fans may kill us because we're only shipping to the US this time. Sorry!

Seriously, this is a low-risk project. We can do it. And we promise to ship on-time. Give us a chance. Thanks Kickstarter!
