What is a WiFi connected relay: how to control a device remotely

A relay is an electrical component that allows to control an electrical circuit through an external electrical signal. It is made up of a contact that shifts when actuated, opening or closing the connected circuit. In this way, relays make it possible to turn an electrical device on or off, functioning as electrical switches that can be controlled by a signal that can be electrical or digital.

What is a WiFi connected relay

And what is a WiFi-connected relay? As the name implies, a connected relay is a particular type of relay that can be controlled through a connection, in this case WiFi.

It goes without saying that WiFi relays allow you to control the status of a considerable number of electrical devices, thus controlling them both on and off. 

WiFi connected relay: remote control and voice commands

A WiFi-connected relay connects to your home or office WiFi network, and can be controlled remotely using any smart home control mobile app. In addition, connected relays can also be managed through the use of a smart speaker or voice assistant such as Siri from Apple, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

This way, you can control home electrical devices even and especially when you are away from home, simply by using your Internet connection.

Smart automations and scenarios with WiFi connected relays

In addition, WiFi-connected relays can be used to create and set up many automations, i.e., scheduled actions to automatically turn on and off one or more devices at the same time, making home accessory control even easier and more efficient.

Other benefits: control and easy installation

However, these are not the only advantages of a WiFi-connected relay. First of all, WiFi-connected relays offer users unmatched control over the energy management of their home electrical devices, allowing them to turn appliances on and off as needed.

Last but not least, another great plus point for WiFi-connected relays is their ease of installation. There is no need to have advanced knowledge in electronics to install and setup these devices; it is a simple and very fast job.
