Hello, I am starting a simple circuit breaker controlled by arduino, but I needed some guidance on communication.
I need to give control (via computer or smartphones) basically to be able to monitor and control the breaker over the wireless internet (through routers). So I needed to know what hardware are required for such task.
Some of restrictions are: the distance between the router (where computer is connected) and micro-controller are far away (which is why wireless is needed), I have not set on the model of board (I was considering DUE or Mega series).
From what I have looked at, there are wifi shields that can be wireless connected to routers. But I was not sure how make this public so it is not just limited to LAN. I have looked at XBee connections, but it seemed that this cannot communicate with routers.
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
