Compact embedded module WizFi630 enables to connect any serial RS232 device to a TCP/IP network. However it´s not all. By supporting 3 Ethernet ports, it offers a wide variability to connect another devices to a Wi-Fi network, in various operation modes.
Novelty from company Wiznet – WizFi630 module provides, besides the RS232/ Wi-Fi interface, even many other functions, which place it to a category of routers. Via 2 UART and 3 Ethernet ports it is possible connect several devices in various modes of operation: AP (Access point), Client , AP client and Gateway. These modes are best illustrated in attached picturs. For a development support, we offer you a novelty – WizFi630EVB evaluation board with complete accessories for a promo price in a limited amount – with almost 50% discount.

A new internet controlled lighting project called SplashLight is being developed. It has 4 relays to turn lights on and off, and 3 PWM outputs to drive RGB LEDs. The core of the project is a Cortex M3 uC with an Ethernet PHY/MAC from Texas Instruments.
The project includes iPhone, Android, and web applications to control the board over the web. It looks like the PCB and schematic files will be made available in the future, but the license is still unannounced. Might be ripe for a remake.

This project is one of many I have undertaken to control my house using a set of rules, a web interface, a logger and many more components. This project is a light dimmer which has multiple control interfaces such an RS485 network, an infrared remote control, a proximity touch slider or touch sensor.

The following construction allows a simple cable tester to determine whether the cable network is present in high-frequency signal from the source. It is a contactless version of the tester to detect the presence of a signal at distances up to 2m. It can be used to control all types of signal cables, such as divorce Ethernet,modem connections, digital TV, etc. The circuit lights an LED at the moment it accepts RF energy around the cable.

I never appreciated my internet connection enough when I lived in the city. Now that I’m a country mouse I think it really IS a series of tubes. Reliable it’s not. So I thought it would be fun to use an Arduino, my BlinkM and a bit of python to create a visual network monitor.

Darco wanted to be able to control his Christmas lights with a web browser so he build the networked christmas light controller in an altoids tin. The controller is based on ybox2 networked set-top box. He removed the original controller and have the black power cables connected directly to the outer green wires. View the complete modification of Christmass lights on the link below. [via]

This project is an Arduino based network status monitor. Eric Ayars wanted a unit to serve as an early-warning system for network problems so he concluded using LED as signs. When the leds light green the system is fine, when the leds light red Arduino is detecting a problem and when the leds light yellow-orange the Arduino is unable to detect the system status. The unit is able to monitor 13 systems and the software requires two separate programs: one to run on the host machine and determine the status of the various machines on the network, one to run on the Arduino and control the lights based on the information it gets from the host. Check details on the link below.

Akiba @ FreakLabs introduced a new Arduino compatible board named Freakduino-Chibi. This board has open source 802.15.4 protocol stack and integrated radio. The stack and board are designed to make it easy for people to setup wireless sensor networks or get started in embedded wireless communications. Check it out on the link below. [via]

A couple of weeks ago, I published a great little controller module that provided 6 relays able to be controlled from a computer via a network. After I published it, I got to thinking that the same basic design, with a couple of changes could be pressed into service as a garden watering system controller. So, I got to work, modified the design, and here you have it… A sprinkler controller that runs by itself, that can be programmed and monitored from your computer via your home network.
