Picture of Make Voice Controlled Light Bulb Using Relay and Evive

We’ve controlled lights with touch, we’ve controlled them with a Smartphone. How about controlling them with voice?

Presenting to you the voice-activated light bulb! This project is a smaller version of the bigger home lighting automation projects that is ideal for beginners who wish to make IoT projects and educators who wish to introduce IoT and home automation to their students.

To make this project, we’re going to use the evive IoT kit and code it using PictoBlox - a graphical programming software based on Scratch with advanced capabilities. You can download it from HERE.

Ready to automate light control? Ready. Set. Go!
