Particle Internet Button 434 MHz Remote

Particle Internet Button 434 MHz Remote

I’ve been using remote RF outlets to control Christmas decorations for years. It’s definitely easier than trying to get under and around the tree to plug lights into an outlet or go outside to plug in the outdoor lights. Yet I constantly lose (and miraculously find) the remote every year. I’ve also had a 434 MHz transmitter for a while and decided to put it and the Particle Internet Button to use. It’s (almost) a perfect match considering the RF remote can control 4 outlets and the Particle Internet Button has 4 buttons! The only thing lacking is that the RF remote has “all on” and “all off” buttons. Meh.

Since I included the clickButton library, I can make the buttons do double (or triple or quadruple or …) duty. :smile:

@wgbartley, I love that library and I think it is under-used by folks!

I stand corrected, I know peekay does a lot of porting too.

He does a lot of everything :wink:

Enough! You’re making me blush! I just wish I could do this ALL the time (fracking job gets in the way!) :stuck_out_tongue:

Peekay, let’s hope that one day soon that you will be doing this all the time.

Getting back to the OP’s project I think I saw this on hackster and commented that blynk would be a very useful addition to the project, correct me if I am wrong wgbartley.

Just checked and it is your project on hackster, and you already agreed blynk could be useful.
Any news? I worked with blynk bridge, once you get your head around the variables it is very easy to use and potentially rather useful when integrating different systems.
