How to turn on your Computer Remotely – DIY Tutorial

Powering on your PC from anywhere in the world is something that you wanted for a long time?

Today we’re making a very interesting DIY Project. I will show you the best method to power on your PC from anywhere in the world using your smartphone, tablet, or any other device that can access a link.

For this project you need a Wemos D1 Mini module – which is very cheap, around 3$, and a Relay Shield for it, which is around 2 dollars. I would like to tell you that you don’t need a Soldering Iron as I know many of you run away from that. But, if you want me to start with a lie, don’t worry, you don’t it!

#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <WiFiClient.h>
#include <ESP8266WebServer.h>
#include <ESP8266mDNS.h>

const char* ssid = "";                   // WRITE YOUR WIFI SSID
const char* password = "";     // WRITE YOUR WIFI PASSWORD
const char* web_password = ""; // WRITE SOMETHING SECURE AND RANDOM
const int relayPin = D1;
byte mac[6];                     // the MAC address of your Wifi shield

ESP8266WebServer server(8085);

const int led = 13;

void handleRoot() {
  digitalWrite(led, 1);
  server.send(200, "text/plain", "hello from esp8266!");
  digitalWrite(led, 0);
}

void handleNotFound(){
  digitalWrite(led, 1);
  String message = "File Not Found\n\n";
  message += "URI: ";
  message += server.uri();
  message += "\nMethod: ";
  message += (server.method() == HTTP_GET)?"GET":"POST";
  message += "\nArguments: ";
  message += server.args();
  message += "\n";
  for (uint8_t i=0; i<server.args(); i++){
