Hi- I'm very new to Arduino. I'm actually working on a project for my job. A little side project my boss and I think would be very useful.
But, I need to come up to speed very quickly and get this developed.
I'm confused by all the different boards available, hats, etc.
I need an Arduino with WiFi and wired LAN capability, and to be as cheap as possible. Should I be getting an Uno with some sort of hat or is there an Arduino board that has a built in WiFi/LAN module?
When I look at all of the different options I am not sure if I'm missing anything.
In the end we need to monitor something (a few things, acutally) and get emails out from the Arduinos. Would I be better trying to get the Arduino to send the email or having them somehow communicate with a central computer (a Raspberry Pie?) that sends the emails?
