DIY Arduino-powered contact sense monitor with web output

 It's always great to see one of our products being used in a useful situation, and this example by Maurice Castro is a fine example. His project uses our EtherTen board with a little external circuitry as a contact sense monitor which can read error conditions from a variety of security or telco devices and convert this into data which can be read by a Nagios system. The sketch creates a simple web page displaying relevant data which is displayed when a client has connected. 

Maurice has documented the project and included the required sketch and library, so visit his interesting website for more information. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

When putting together your next Internet-enabled Arduino project - save time, space and money with the Freetronics EtherTen. Apart from being fully Arduino Uno-compatible, it has onboard Ethernet, microSD socket, full USB interface (so you don't need a costly FTDI cable just to upload a sketch!) and supports optional Power-over-Ethernet.
