Hi all, I just finished my personal home automation project with Arduino. I developed a C# server application that works as "home server" in order to manage my house. This application interacts with the Arduinos connected with sensors/actuators. These are all Arduino compatible, sono directly connected.
My qyestion is: now the c# application server connects to arduino with an ethernet shield with a simple socket connection. I heard someone using other communication protocol like Modbus: Someone could say to me when modbus is better (obviously exclude cases where sensors NEED this protocol...) Someone of you usually use other communication protocols?
Thank you very much.
