Arduino Micro Controllers

Post by MrGodin » July 10th, 2019, 10:57 pm

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.

Nice, sounds fun.

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.
PM me if you need to contact me. Thanks to all the helpful people on this forum especially to Chili.

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.
