That makes sense, and I am in need of a solution soon. It does raise the price of my project a bit, but who cares at this point. Thank you and I will look into this more. You have NO idea how good it is to have an idea of a solution, thanks. I never even came close to thinking of the pocket router idea.

Hi,
 I am hoping and prefer to use this with my iPhone, but if needed I can use partners android. I don't have my own web server, so only standard public access to that. I set up the arduino as a local web server to see the temperature, but was not able to access that wirelessly, not sure why.
I am not very good at web based or network based solutions, sorry. I am a circuit guy. Anyway, since this project is presented at my school in the classroom I do not have the option of using Ethernet which seems to be the more easily done option. I really just need some kind of notification sent from the arduino to say "Hey, your sprinkler is going off!" I am not going to be picky on how that is achieved.
Thank you for your response.

Hello,
I am new here, so hello!!
I am doing a project for school and am having difficulty finding a solution to one aspect. My project is an arduino Mega2560 based fire sprinkler system that continuously monitors a temperature sensor. If the temp reaches the triggerTemp, then the system is activated and turns on a water pump that feeds a sprinkler. The arduino also shows all the status of the system on an LCD screen, along with other minor things.
What I cant get to work is the ability to send a notification of ANY kind to my phone or email once the system has been activated to notify the use that the system is active. I need this to be wireless, so I have the Arduino brand WiFi shield, https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11287?, but can not find a way to send the notification. I tried Ardumote, but apparently the wifi library and shield do not support UDP at this time. I tried twitter, but there is not a solution for doing this with Wifi instead of ethernet. I just need some form of notification to be sent to the phone, does anyone know how I can accomplish this? I can connect to the network fine, i just do not know how to configure a notification after that.
If I need to use some other form of shield or hardware to accomplish this that is fine, I just need this to work.
