I know someone else has made a Bluetooth transmitter to a relay so i wanted to ask a few questions about it being possible? I am an almost newbie at electronics but i do know a few things, so first of all I want to power my ATtiny85 from wall power because i want my ATtiny85 inside the wall of my house to control the roof light and i want it to be powered always how would i do that? Second is it possible to switch a 220V AC relay from the ATtiny85 if not would i be better off with an arduino? Thanx

Yes it is possible.

I am an almost newbie at electronics but i do know a few things, so first of all I want to power my ATtiny85 from wall power because i want my ATtiny85 inside the wall of my house to control the roof light and i want it to be powered always how would i do that?

If you buy a module like HC-05, that needs two pins, TX (Transmit) and RX (Receive).

Example: http://arduinofy.blogspot.se/2013/05/attiny-bluetooth.html

Second is it possible to switch a 220V AC relay from the ATtiny85

Yes, you need a driver since most 5volt relay needs more current than a ATtiny can handle. A Relay driver is just a couple of discrete components.

Example:

enter image description here

Use the search words "arduino mosfet relay driver" at your favorite search engine and you will find what you are searching for.

if not would i be better off with an arduino?

No, only if you need more memory and pins.

And as a addon: If you plan to control it from an Android I can recommend "App Inventor form MIT" to program your app or you can have a look at mine ;-)

  • \$\begingroup\$ No there is a relay driver included on the board. imgs.inkfrog.com/pix/ebayimage2012/26074-7.jpg \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Could you make a simple circuit diagram of how I set it up possibly? And do I need extra power for the relay and can I leave the bluetooth module plugged in 24/7? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Could you make a simple circuit diagram of how I set it up possibly? When you ask it like that I would recommend that you start with a Arduino, a relay shield and a Bluetooth shield. And do I need extra power for the relay No and can I leave the bluetooth module plugged in 24/7 Yes \$\endgroup\$
