<...>I'm hoping to start by having several battery powered wireless sensors, (nothing fancy, just cheap ones that come in Arduino kits, 3-Axis, Ultrasonic, temp, etc.). With a range of 50m or more (100m would be great), all linked to a battery powered hand held LCD(Touch) that displays the sensor readings. I've seen similar projects, weather stations, alarms, home automation for example. But I'd like to eventually expand on those idea's, perhaps add a camera and motor control later on.<...>I do have a little experience with batteries and plan to use 2 x 18650 cells in series(7.4v) to power everything.
...And you definitely need to slow down; try and get one or two things properly understood and then you will realise it's not rocket science, just a lot of stuff to understand....
Unless of course, you strap one onto a model rocket. Then it IS rocket science.
Mornings guys, thanks for your replies....All this while keeping my 2 sons(8 and 9) and 2 grandsons(5 and amused, my head hurts ..
Same hardware, same problem. Any idea's guys?
Feel free to ask questions here, once you have things SOMEWHAT more focused and narrowed down.
@Shadeyman - can you edit your original post and change the thread title? It seems to me we are straying from "Do People Create And Sell Sketches?".
BTW, "here" meant "The Arduino Forums", using a separate appropriately titled topic for each focused question.Not "here", as in "this particular thread" going on forever and switching from one probably to another as time goes on... :-)
Thanks @Shadeyman. You should send a Karma point to Robin2, the author of the Several Things thread.
Not especially descriptive.........Regards,Graham
