Arduino Micro Controllers

Been on a bit of a change of pace with the Arduino Mirco Controller. Got a light sensor with a couple LEDs set up on a bread board. When the light reaches a certain threshold (darkness) it turns on the other LED. Am ordering some 5 volt relays and a thermo sensors to control my household fans when it gets too hot. Fun and exciting stuff.
I am writing a c++ COM Port wrapper to handle communications. I also have a UI written in c# as well.

Fun stuff! I've also been playing around with my arduinos recently. Have you messed with the Ethernet shield and doing socket connections via the arduino? I wasn't a big fan of the com port method via usb so was considering connecting multiple arduinos to a ethernet switch and connecting that switch to my router.

No, but I have looked into the Wifi shields. I plan to implement one of those two. I've only been at this a couple weeks. So I've made some progress.
Lets me know if you get the Ethernet connected, would be nice to pick your brain on that.

I wonder if Chili got his A/C-project done https://forum.planetchili.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=954 :D

Wow, 7 years in the making if not.
