Thanks guys, I'm looking into all of these ideas. Thinking the remote control sockets may be the best option. Any directions to code for use the arduino as a remote control?!

Ahhh, that sounds much easier. Sorry for the menial questions, but im very much a beginner. Could one arduino remotley control multiple sockets?

ie. could i use regular fans to do this?

if i didnt control the speed but turned them on and off would it be much simpler?

Thanks Mark. I am still at a stage of playing with different fans, so am not sure of the motor type, But I would not want them to be any less powerful than a standard 16" oscillating fan which power at approx 45-50w and generally a remote voltage of 220v (sometimes 240). I am hoping to power at least three fans, (obviously from the mains), how feasible is this?!

Hello all!

I have recently bought an Arduino uno to help me complete my final year project at university. I am looking to use it in an art installation to control multiple fans, (in a dimmer switch manner), in various places in my degree show space. I am a complete beginnner and have not yet managed to get that far. I was wondering how feasible my idea is and how I begin to go about programming it? If anyone has any recommendations for sites with relevant programming codes that would be amazing. Do I need to buy a servo motor?

Many many thanks, LJ_Blake
