Hello everyone,

I am in my junior year of EE and working on a project for school. Is it possible to connect the arduino UNO v3 to a bluetooth and the arduino wifi shield? I am new to using arduino's but i have an idea for a project which i will explain. What i want to do is connect to the arduino uno through bluetooth, process a signal that will then be sent to a server through the wifi shield and get a response back from the server, which will then allow the arduino to give an output. I've read online that with an IO expansion shield i can connect a bluetooth but i dont know how to connect the wifi shield. I will greatly appreciate your help.

I am also new to the forum and i am not sure if this is the right section for the post.

You can always post questions, but perhaps 30 minutes of google- is-my- friend research would help you verbalize your question more precisely and, if not providing you with the answer right away, would at least show some effort on your side  ;)

Connect it to what?

Where is this signal coming from? What kind of "signal" is it?

Output to what?

The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.

Hi PaulS, i should have explained better. I want to connect my iphone 4 through bluetooth to my arduino UNO and then check if the device is on the database list, which will then connect to a server through WIFI. The server will then allow the signal to be accepted and open my door. I have found out that connecting to the iphone IOS is only done now through a bluetooth BLE (4.0) without enrolling in apple's MFI program and people are still working on it, i have yet to find any sellers.

You will still have to develop a native IOS app to make use of BLE on the iPhone. It's part of the Core Bluetooth API. Texas Instruments have published some demo source - http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Category:IPhone4SBLEDemo.
