EasySwitchBoxMySensors.ino is the Arduino example sketch using MySensors API.
Burn the sketch into and the switchBox will become one of the MySensors home automation network Node. To create the network you need a controller and at least two Nodes one as a Sensor, relay or switch Node and the other one as “Gateway Serial”. I personally love Domoticz as controller. Please check this HowTo to install Domoticz.
