Hey everyone. I do back yard snowmaking. This comming year i would like to automate my system. I want to see what my system pressures are and control simple sprinkler valves when i click a button. I dont want to have a computer on 24/7...
i have
-eirther net
-two pressure transducers
-micro sd card

My problems are
-how do i display an html page that i made using notes?
-How do i make it a webpage that can be seen from a phone or an internet devise when im at school or away?
-how do i hit a button that says automate and will turn on the valves when there is a temp reading below 28 out?

  Web Server
 A simple web server that shows the value of the analog input pins.
 using an Arduino Wiznet Ethernet shield.
 * Ethernet shield attached to pins 10, 11, 12, 13
 * Analog inputs attached to pins A0 through A5 (optional)

This is my first time using this and i have never done script before. I think that I will start with Water temp f and air temp f and water psi and air psi.

Ok so here is my project. I am dealing with water and compressed air.
Water pressure will be 0 to 150
Water temp will be from 0 to 100
This is not nesisary but extremely cool. Monitor the flow rate in gpm.
Air pressure is from 0 to 200
Air temp I'm not sure it's from a compressor so I want to say 0 to 300
I have a air chiller so I would like it to display the difference from the air temp comming out of the compressor to what the temp is after the chiller.     
I  also using two irrigation vales to turn the air and water on when I tell it.

Ok so I have the uno controller that's it. My goal is to wirelessly despaly this to a private web page were I can have all of it displayed but also be able to open and close the valves sepertly. Is this possible? I don't know scripting really well but would love to learn. Please give me help. If you need anymore info let me know. I need something simple
