[font=Verdana][font=Verdana]Hi all,

Wish to get some inputs on this project which i find it interesting but yet to see any people performing this project. Wonder is it possible to add a wireless control to the fan and control it via android app? For instance to switch on/off and to adjust the different fan power. i am new to interfacing arduino to higher power (electrical unit) and wish to get some kind inputs. Thank you.

regards

I don't believe the Arduino has a fan. None of mine do, anyway.

Making an Arduino control a fan, turning it off or on, is easy. Setting the speed may or may not be, depending on the fan.

Using an Android to push switches on the Arduino is possible. Though using your finger is just as easy.

Perhaps you need to explain your project a little better.

perhaps i had not been clear in my writings,
1) Interfacing Arduino to control a stand fan. Original fan control unit is of push buttons. Use the arduino to replace the fan control unit to control the different oscillations speed.
2) Use Android program to communicate to the Arduino wireless. Android app will act like a remote control.

wish to get some ideas what components are required? is it possible to modify the fan control unit ?

thanks, i believe the relay is a "power up" middleware which helps TTL 5 v arduino output to interface with higher power circuit.

Any idea how to rewire the fan control unit to interface with the arduino?

thanks, i hope it is a feasible project..:D
