@vinayak.joshi You will be the best person to handle this…

Hi @saifquraishi387:

Could you provide details of of the dimmer you are trying to use?
Is it a single component, or is it some form of module?

Single component type

Hi @saifquraishi387:

It is not possible to interface a triac directly with the Bolt WiFi module (You can interface it, but controlling it correctly for AC phase control is not possible).

You can however interface the triac with an Arduino and then send commands to the Arduino via the Bolt WiFi module.

Please go through the following link to understand how to interface a triac with an Arduino.

This is what I want to connect
Do I need arduino for that

Hi @saifquraishi387:

As far as I can understand this module requires you to detect the zero-crossing of the AC signal, and then give a trigger to the triac.

This kind of a thing cannot be done with the Bolt WiFi module.
You will need to use the Arduino for this work.

Oh ok will you explain how to connect bolt arduino and triac
