Sorry for the (hopefully ) attention grabbing title but I really do need some help!
I'm trying to build a circuit that will turn on heat lamps in my dog's kennels during a defined time variable if the temperature drops below a certain set point with an override that I can trigger from my phone.
I've managed to sort out everything on the electronics side but I'm struggling on the phone bit, I'm using an Uno with a ESP8266-01.
I'm at the stage where the Uno can connect to my router via the ESP & I can ping it from any device locally connected to my router using Mac's "Terminal" but I can't connect via a browser & I haven't got a clue on how to proceed from here.
I've dowloaded the "Arduino Ethernet Manager" App thingy but I can't find any support for it.
I can find loads of videos on how to create a web connected weather station etc (I don't understand them) but I can't find any help on how to simply turn on & off a digital output from my phone (or at a push a web browser)
An old(ish) guy would be very grateful if you can help.
