My first post on this great forum!
For two weeks ago I did not know anything about Arduino but now I am very excited to get going with my first design...
I am planning to control the heating system in the garage that is located some 15m from my house. I will measure temperatures at various locations inside (and one sensor outside) and control the heater based on that information. I will also want to communicate with the system remotely from house. Unfortunately I do not have any wires between the houses so I will need to go wireless.
My initial plan is to use: Mega 2560 board Nuelectronics Datalog shield Xbee or other wireless shield SD memory card to save the data
Does this sound reasonable? Can I connect both datalog- and xbee shields on mega 2560? What other options are there for the wireless link? Any other initial comments?
