Relay is a useful electronics switch which can be controlled by low voltage signal. Relay is often used by computer to control high voltage circuit.
In this lesson, we will show you how to to turn on/off Relay and Buzzer from a remote browser through internet .
We will use Osoyoo Mega-IoT Shield to connect Relay, LED and MEGA2560 MCU board. OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560 can work as a web server. Remote browser can access this web server and control the Relay connected to D13 pin of MEGA2560.

OSOYOO MEGA-IoT extension board x 1
USB Cable x 1
Relay module x 1
Buzzer module x 1
PnP cable x 1

male to male Jumper x 1
First, please plug OSOYOO MEGA-IoT Extension Board into OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560:
Then connect as below (Jumper Cap should connect ESP8266 RX with A8, TX with A9):
Relay – OSOYOO MEGA-IoT Extension Board:
Relay Module – D6
COM – 5V (Jumper)
Buzzer Module – OSOYOO MEGA-IoT Extension Board
VCC – 5V (Jumper)
GND – GND (Jumper)
Relay – Buzzer Module
No – SIG (Jumper)
Step 1 Install latest IDE (If you have IDE version after 1.1.16, please skip this step)
Download IDE from https://www.arduino.cc/en/software, then install the software.
Step 2 WifiEsp Library Installation (if you have installed WifiESP library, please skip this step)
OSOYOO MEGA-IoT extension TX/RX pin to OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560 A9/A8 pin by default. So in sketch code, we need use Software Serial Port to communicate with ESP8266 (set A9 as TX and A8 as RX in softwareserial object).
To use this wifi shield in IDE, we need download?WiFiEsp-master library from following link:
Open IDE.click Sketch – Include Library- Add .Zip library to load above zip files into IDE.
Step 3 After installing above library, please download the main code from following link, unzip it, you will see a folder called “smarthome-lesson15”:
Step 4 After above operations are completed, connect OSOYOO MEGA2560 Board to PC with USB cable.
Step 5 IDE:Choose corresponding board type and port type for you project.
Step 6 IDE: Click file – Open, then choose code “smarthome-lesson15.ino” in the folder, load up the sketch onto your OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560.
Note: In the sketch, find following lines:
char ssid = "******"; // your network SSID (name) char pass = "******"; // your network password
please replace the ****** with your correct wifi SSID and password, otherwise your project can not connect to Internet.
After loading the sketch to OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560, open the serial monitor in the upper-right corner of IDE, you will see following result:
From the serial monitor , you can see the IP address of your MEGA2560 board in the read circle (in above picture, 192.168.50.102).Then use your browser to visit the website http://mega2560-ip-address (in above case, http://192.168.50.102), you will see following result:
click the two links as showed in above picture, you will turn on/off the Relay module which is connected to your MEGA2560 through the IoT Shield. If Relay is turned on, you will hear buzzer alarm, if relay is off, buzzer will also be turned off.
