At the core is an Arduino board with an Adafruit Feather Huzzah WIFI module, a Feather tripler and three Feather Relays. 

The Huzzah board connect with io.adafruit. Io.adafruit is connected to IFTTT and IFTTT watches the Google calendar for the calendar event that will trigger the device.

Each outlet is triggered by specifically named Google Calendar events. This allows you to schedule devices to turn on remotely on the fly
