The Programmable Switch for NI myRIO project demonstrates how to use the NI myRIO to wirelessly control a switch via your smartphone or any UDP-enabled device. This project is focused on controlling power to an electrical device that uses a standard power plug; for example, a lamp. This provides for many creative applications including home automation of lights or other electronics.

READ DOCUMENTATION REGARDING SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS AND TIMING CONFIGURATION. This package requires you to install additional software to your NI myRIO and to configure its Time Settings in NI MAX. To find the documentation, install the package and create a new Programmable Switch project. See the READ ME virtual folder inside the resulting LabVIEW project.
