Tutorial: Control devices over the Internet with Arduino

 Controlling devices over the Internet is certainly possible, and there are an almost infinite number of methods to make it happen. One simple yet effective method is using Ethernet-enabled Arduino boards and various data protocols. Once example of this has been published by Instructables user "akellyirl". Their tutorial describes how to control Arduino digital outputs over the Internet via UDP (user datagram protocol). After reviewing this you should be up to speed on Arduino and Internet-control in no time. Furthermore, a short demonstration follows in this video:

To get started, visit the tutorial page. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

To get started with your own Internet-enabled projects, use our Freetronics EtherTen - theArduino Uno-compatible with onboard Ethernet, microSD socket and optional PoE:

... or for more program space, I/O ports consider the Freetronics EtherMega - the Arduino Mega2560-compatible with onboard Ethernet, microSD socket and optional PoE:
