Programmable Outlet (the Portlet)

I wanted to share a project of mine called the Portlet (portmanteu of Programmable Outlet). I got tired of watching it collect dust on the shelf so I’m making it Open Hardware and publishing everything.

Here is the website and all the downloads:

The project is complete and tested (and in use in my house).

The main features of the project are:

  • Easily programmable “brain” (Arduino, Photon, etc.)
  • Controls outlets
  • Thermocouple inputs
  • Buttons and screen for feedback

Hopefully this helps fill a niche that folks are looking for in the Home Automation Hardware world! Or even inspiration for a new project!
