How to Use WIFI Controller with iOS System to Control LED Light

Smartphone WIFI Controller now supports 4.6 ~ 6.1 version iOS system other than 2.1 ~ 4.0 version Android software system. It is another choice of controlling device when you use iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Its controlling software is installed in your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch by iTunes.

We try to demonstrate the controlling of LED light by iPod.

First, we prepare materials and do some wiring.
