Mount and Use the Remote Switch

Now, we'll mount the remote to the light switch plate and put it to use!

Try to avoid actually taking the switch plate off (just take out the screws). This way you will avoid the high voltage mains wiring behind the plate.

Mounting

Unscrew the two screws from the switchplate.

 

Place the mount over the plate and screw back in.

Plug the 5V 2A power supply into the wall and then into Crickit's DC power port.

It's ready for testing! Use the Adafruit Bluefruit app to connect to the device, then, use the up and down buttons in the control section to turn the servo up and down.

Cover

Once it's working to your satisfaction, you can neaten up the servo wiring and screw the cover into place.
