Aquarium Monitor

Hi! I want to use my Arduino UNO to monitor my aquarium status. The may objective is to: - Every 5 minutes the arduino reads the inputs from an temperature sensor, an water level sensor, an light sensor, and an water spill sensor. - Then after each read it writes to an HTML the results and save the HTML in an SD card - Then via ethernet i can remotely connect to the arduino SD card and read the data.

For this i already have an Arduino UNO, and ethernet shield with SD reader and all the shields for the sensors.

What do you think? is it easy? do I need any extra shield? or am I complicating a lot?

thanks for all support and advices! :D

google "arduino [Ethernet] shield or similar topics . You need the interface to the internet or pc to do that. I don't think you can write an HTML file to an SD card. You need to the Ethernet shield to write it to a PC or the web.

Have a look here:

Automated Reptile Control Center. He's doing things very similar to what you want to do....minus the wáter.

This is such an incredible Project, it's almost required reading for anyone developing an aquarium/terrarium controller with advanced logging and visualization capabilities.

Of course you can write an HTML file to an SD card! A file is a file. He already said he has an Eethernet shield to actually send it.

ok, sorry, I missed that. Would he be able to do it without the ethernet shield ?

Depends on what you mean. Yes, he can save an HTML file on an SD card, if he has a shield with an SD socket and circuitry. However, he will need some way to get the data in the file to a PC or a web site in order to display it on a browser. That could be done via Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, or even just a serial connection to a PC, assuming the PC has a program running that will accept the file, to pass on to a browser or send to a web site.
