Hello home automation enthusiasts ! I recently started a series of video on Youtube where I teach you how to design your own Arduino shield for home automation projects. Designing your own shield will provide several advantages, even if it requires more work than using the breadboard. Part 1 will focus on some general considerations before designing the shield. Part 2 will go further and I will show you how to actually design the shield in EAGLE. Finally, part 3 will be all about fabricating your shield and testing it. The three parts of the tutorial are available below:

Part 1: Plan your project

Part 2: Design the PCB

Part 3: Fabrication & Test
