Hi…I have an estimote beacon which is having a GPIO output. I actually want to drive 230 VAC lamp from this GPIO. I have a made a circuit ,before putting it in action requesting your people review and comments . If I want to produce the unit in bulk [ To a PCB board and package it ] what is the best guide lines to follow.
Even if Estimote Beacons were capable of delivering 230 VAC via GPIO, the battery would just die instantly
GPIO output in Estimote Beacons is DC, and 1.8 or 3.3 V (don’t remember exactly) for the high signal. It’s meant more as a control signal, not something that can really power anything, except maybe some simple low-power sensors/devices (and 230 VAC is not low power ).
So the idea here would be more, power your lamp from an actual 230 VAC source (like … a mains socket? ), and instead use the GPIO signal from the beacon to enable/disable the lamp. You’d probably want to consult some electrical engineer to help you design a circuit like that.
(Please please please do not try to tinker with mains/230 voltages unless you really know what you’re doing, or ideally, are qualified to do so!)
