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.
