I am brand new to the forms and I'm also new to the wonderful world of Arduino. I am eager to start building my first project, but I need some guidance on what exactly I need in order to accomplish and start!
So here's what I want to do... I want to have a christmas light controller that can control 8 outlets via a web browser and PHP. I've seen it done before, so I know it's possible! My thoughts are that I need a Arduino ethernet shield, Arduino uno board, bread board (with connectors), solid state relays, speaker of some sort (not sure yet), outlets to control.
So that's what I'm thinking I need. I have watched many YouTube videos, and once I discovered all it was a PHP web server, I got happy because I already know PHP and I won't have to learn a new language!
Thanks! I look forward hearing back from everyone :)
