Let's summarize what we did in this chapter. What we did in this project was build a system to wireless command relays from your computer or mobile device. The project works the same as a commercial device that you can buy in any hardware store, but you get the advantage of being able to customize the system for your needs. And you also have the advantage of controlling these devices right from your smartphone, and not from yet another remote control.

Let's see what the major takeaways from this chapter were. First, we chose the components to build our system, including the relay modules to connect with the devices to be controlled. We also chose a Wi-Fi chip so that the project can be connected to your local Wi-Fi network.

Then, we assembled the hardware part of the project. We also connected the desk lamp to the project, so we could control it via Wi-Fi.

We then wrote the Arduino code to test the different components of the project. We tested the relay modules separately, and then...
