Creating residential monitoring network

Arduino met a short time and was very interested in this, would love to make a monitoring system for my house, but do not know how to do, what parts to buy and so on. Would you like a wireless network via the Internet (or other possible means). My name is Luke and I’m 16 and I loved the world of Arduino, but precisso a little help almentar my knowledge in this area. Any help would be excellent. thank you

Check out what my arduino is doing at my home on the web site it publishes at www.2wg.co.nz. Yes the web site is published and updated in real time by my arduino.

The system does climate monitoring, security via PIRs and can open and close the garage door remotely via a secure option on its website. Much of the source code is available of the systems website so you can work out how it is working.

Hi CatweazleNZ, It ´s great :)

how did you done that? I need to do a same Monitoring network for a project.

Could you explain me how you´ve done yours? Is it possible to insert a graph for the Temperatur ?

Thanks

could help me create a network monitoring with video cameras me ajude por favor

I started out with an extensive software development background although not in the C language.

I then used an incremental development approach solving one problem at a time - that way you always have a working application and the next development task usually becomes quite obvious.

It has taken me six months to get to this point and I can see another six months work ahead of me. If you look at some of the code base to my application that is posted on the Arduino's web site (www.2wg.co.nz) you will see some of the challenges I have faced and how I resolved them (e.g. a 600 line web server procedure). I am sharing the code because I understand the effort and realise the impossibility to a non professional being able to solve the various development challenge.

Graphing using an Arduino is likely impossible - the RAM limitations would prevent any sort of in-memory graph generation. But you could likely do a simple XY line graph using a fixed pitch font on a web page.

I am currently reviewing my implementation. To get to the next level I may seek to move the data, much of the functionality and the web site across to an MS WIndows based web server application and downsize the Arduino application to just sensor reading and device control etc. That would eliminate Arduino memory issues, give me a very fast web site, allow me to store masses of historical data within an SQL Server database, allow full reporting and graphing and allow multiple Arduino's at different locations to be supported from one central management application.

Did I say I can see six months work ahead - it has just become a year or more. I might have to commercialise my system to give me the incentive to go all the way down that track.

Hi CatweazleNZ,

waouhh :astonished:, so much work!! I have to do something similar for my project with arduino yun. But i don´t really know where and how to beginn! :relaxed:

You have done a great job

You might be able to serve graphs directly on the arduino with SVG or possibly JavaScript to generate the graphs client side.

It's times like this when I just plug the arduino into the raspberry pin and let the pi run the server.
