LOWCOST WIFI/BLE TOUCH SWITCH SOLUTION REMOTE CONTROL FOR SMARTHOME

In today’s market, equipping on-off control switches for home appliances is increasingly popular. In terms of aesthetics, conventional switches are larger in size, take up a lot of space and often people forget to turn off electrical equipment in the family, thus causing expensive electricity costs in the family.  

To solve these problems and help make the home smarter, EPI would like to introduce to customers a reasonable price wifi/ble touch switch solution that turns devices on and off with just one touch. and remote control using components from brands that EPI is officially distributing such as: Espressif, Hongfa, HTC,… 

Wifi/BLE touch switch is a switch that applies touch technology to help users turn on and off household electrical appliances such as light bulbs, curtains, water heaters,… with just one touch or Controlled by Smartphone or tablet,… via wifi or BLE.    

The solution uses Espressif’s ESP32 wireless communication module to connect to smartphone devices via wifi and can be used even without internet to remotely control the device on/off.   

Besides, to turn on/off the device correctly, EPI used two relay products HF32FV-G and HF32FV-16 from Hongfa to help the device operate stably and effectively.
