Next in the line up of Internet-based Arduino control systems comes an example by Spanish enthusiast Jose Manuel. In this example he demonstrates using the Android and iPhone app NETIO - software that allows you to create a reasonable GUI for your mobile device and then control an Internet-connected microcontroller with it. Doing so is relatively simple and as long as your network is accessible from an external IP address the Arduino can then be controlled from almost anywhere. There's a quick demonstration in the following video (in Spanish - but you can see what's going on):
Another interesting development in the world of Arduino control and the Internet of Things. For more information, visit Jose's website (opens in Google Translate) or the NETIO page. 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.
