I'm using Flyport Wi-Fi and I made several Ad Hoc projects. But you may know that Android doesn't support Ad Hoc!

It seems that openPicus is releasing the new version of Flyport with a WiFi G transceiver that is going to support the softAP (access point) mode that's gonna be compatible with Android.

I made a similar project for me and I used a Flyport Wi-Fi module from

There's a nice carrier board called Grove where you can plug lot of low-cost sensors/actuators and also libraries are available on the openPicus wiki

Hope this helps!

I built a similar product, but not with Arduino. I used Flyport from openPicus (

Now they made a carrier board called Grove where you can plug the Flyport module (Wi-Fi) and connect lot of low-cost grove devices from Seeedstudio.

The main benefits are small dimensions and flexibility, maybe this can be an option for you.

I saw this video

I use flyport wifi module that's preatty mall and powerful. It's like arduino plus a wifi shield, all in one!

Ah and it's open source and italian like Arduino!

I use Arduino for lot of projects, but for powerful webservers I use flyport wifi module. It also supports jquery. It's open source and has a free Ide, but only for windows. Hope this helps

Hi, I'm using the italian openPICUS Flyport WiFi module and I've to say that I created stunning web pages using Jquery. I think the webserver is the best way to interact with emdedded, because you can browse it indipendently from the OS you are using (great if you wanna connect with iPhone iPad and you don't want to create a specific App).

Great project! so funny the video of the garage door alarm! :-))

I'm also using Flyport and I'll try to post something about my project (easy automation in my house). I just wanted to let you know I just saw they made this useful board, , Arduino shields to Flyport socket, to use the wide range of Arduino shields. I bought one and I immedialty started to play with Flyport and Relay shield!

Hi xrkolovos
first of all please note that the Android phones (up to 2.3 version) cannot connect to Ad Hoc WiFi networks. It's a great minus since the small embedded modules cannot provide a router like service (you need more expansive Linux based access points for example).

I solved this using Flyport, an open source module from openpicus project, italian as well. The module provides a powerful webserver and you can create your web pages even using Jquery!

Arduino+shields are very good if you simply wanna send data over WiFi, but Flyport is a real webserver much more powerful IMHO

Hi there, the WiFi shields are good only if you simply want to connect your electronics to the Lan. I'm using Flyport module (openPicus open source project, also italian) that provides a real embedded Webserver with WiFi. Jquery is also supported and I've to say the performance is very good.
I just say these days they made also an Arduino like socket to connect the Flyport module to the Arduino shields.
The only minus is the IDE only for Windows....but I can survive
