Hey there, thinking about making a smart room, as I call it with adruino, going to renovate my room, make a new ceiling, and want to put speackers in it. But Im a bit stuck, all this is quite new to me, and I cant seem to understand what board do I have to buy to make this work. I want to be able to play music from diffrent folders of an sd card from a remote control, So far ive picked up this kit :
board - http://www.ebay.com/itm/121149850931
remote - http://www.ebay.com/itm/121161857318
relay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/171017949257, just to play with the lighting and probably figure out how to boot up a pc from a remote, and practise.
jumper cables - http://www.ebay.com/itm/140741253413 male to female
jumper cables - http://www.ebay.com/itm/140789040422 male to male
sd card module - http://www.ebay.com/itm/390641150923 still thinking if i need it or not ?
First off, as I figure this all out, I want to use a remote for music playback, and when Im a bit more experienced, Ill try out the “easyVR shield” or similar, more suitable ? for voice commands. But I still dont get how do I make the adruino > speakers connection ? Would appreciate any help. Also I see there are screw holes on every board, but I dont see a screw on board for sale anywhere, to make the whole project look good, locked in some kind of box where everything is neat and tidy, I saw enclosure boxes for the main board, but what about the relays shields sensor etc ? Would love to see a link on smth like that too. Thank you. Also if theres something wrong/missing from my set up, please do tell
Just thought about this, maybe its possible to hack an mp3 player, that already has a storage device, and an audio output for the speackers, well anyways that seems a bit too advanced for me at this point hehe
