WiFi-Enabled LED detector tells me when my Dehumidifier is Full!

nRF7002 Powered LED Detector

I created a Wi-Fi-enabled LED Detector using Nordic’s nRF7002 Design Kit (DK). Using this box, I can detect when LEDs on appliances, like my lab’s dehumidifier, are on. In other words, my non-IoT tool can send me messages over the Internet now! And, because the nRF7002 has a dual-band Wi-Fi antenna, it does so on my 5 GHz network.

I ran into a number of issues with this project, and I expected that. Except for the RF part of the design, which works fine! Links to the design files are available on the post on the element14 Community.
