    I am a Computer Engineer and am stuck at a place in my project .
    i want to control my fan , light etc other things using arduino as a switch .
    so for that i will be using a Voltage Controller IC .
    Can you name any IC available to buy from market which can do the job.

    Thx ..

    hi there
    welcome to the forums :)

    So a little more info from you first ....
    1) are you wanting the arduino to control multiple items at the same time?
    ie. multiple output channels ?
    2) do you just want to turn fan. lights etc on and off, or is speed and brightness adjustment also required ?

    1) Yes i want to control multiple channels at some time ..
    2) For initials just ON and OFF is jolly good for me ..

    what actually i am implementing is a smart Home using my android app ..

    will provide a bluetooth to arduino and send command from my mobile application to switch ON OFF the fans n other things ..!!!

    PS : Pretty kewl site , am happy with the quick response :) ..!!

    the part of android software and sending command to arduino to control any outport is already implemented , only problem is how to switch on n off the circuit line I have at my home using arduino .

    One relatively safe and simple approach is to use a solid state relay.
