OUTLET SWITCH DIY KIT
Turn Any Outlet into a Smart Outlet
Want to control the power of an outlet with the Quantum platform? This kit allows you to control the power of an outlet from the Quantum dashboard on any smart device or with a trigger component like a pushbutton on the IR remote.
A natural development of Quantum’s Smart Outlet project, the kit is wired to a Builder Base and outlet and can fit into a standard outlet box. It takes in up to 240V AC or 30V DC at 10 amps, and uses a relay switch to power the outlet on/off.
SMARTER & FASTER
The quickest way to become an electronics hobby ninja!
Skip the hard tasks and continue with the fun part of assembling the bits & pieces of a PCB. Start by selecting the included components, then solder it together and see your project come to life.
Ever tried assembling a PCB from the BOM (Bill of Materials) itself? We did, and we know how hard it is to collect all the needed parts and components. We already did the hard work for you by sourcing all the parts and components needed so you can get straight into creating a finished, working PCB.
The Quantum team is comprised of curious makers and tinkerers, and this DNA can be found within each of our hardware and software products. Our DIY Kits are no exception. We designed our Kits to work well past their first impression, meaning you will have access to high-quality open-source 3D Files, Apps, Firmware, and so much more. Using your DIY KIT unleashes the true power of the Quantum Platform and introduces each of your individual projects to a multitude of integration possibilities.
We made our new DIY Kits compatible with Arduino to make sure more people have access to these awesome boards. The Arduino files can be found in our GitHub repository and are also linked down below. While the Arduino based Four Motor and Joystick DIY Kits are wired and would require some additional work from the community to be supported wirelessly, this functionality is already built into the Quantum IoT Platform. All of your projects, not only these two boards, can massively benefit from having access to wireless functionality right out of the box.
Do I need to buy additional parts?
This product was intended to be used with the Quantum Q-Server and Builder Base. Additional parts required include an AC power line (e.g extension cord) to turn on/off the flowing power.
Do I need to use the Quantum Platform to use this product?
This product was intended to be used with the Quantum Q-Server and Builder Base, however these kits also work with Arduino. You can find the Github files to do this on the kit's documentation page.
