we need to turn on annd off home lights using the internet.. what kind/type of opto isolator or optocoupler is the best one??


You might want to consider using relays.

Hi, The best way to control lights and many other things is with relays. They will work with 115 or 230V lights, incandescent, fluorescent or CFL  or Low Voltage.

Optical isolation is good; many low-cost relay boards have isolation.

For lots of How-To on controlling power with Arduino see the http://ArduinoInfo.Info WIKI  http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/ArduinoPower

Web Interfaces: I have only sent data to the web so far. There are examples that use Cosm.com to send Temperature and Humidity data etc. here:

As I said in another thread, posting the same question in multiple threads only serves to annoy the people that you are seeking help from.

can someone help us with our project??


Help you with it? Sure. Do it for you? Sure, but it will cost you.

Depends on your requirements, such as voltage and current.

we need all the info about automated residential lighting with online access.


Google has been known to often provide "all the info"

The way you have it in your schematic isn't the same as how you have it wired up!
