Hi Arduino Forum!
I'm new to this whole Arduino thing but have managed to write a program that controls RGB LEDs on my Arduino. I want to take the next step and make my Arduino autonomous, that is, free from the PC that it's connected to. I would like my PHP website to tell my Arduino what color to make its RGB lights.
Is there a way for an Arduino to connect wirelessly to my home's wireless router, and then pull my PHP site which contains only simple text such as: "#009900" (RGB color)?
So it looks like this: (Arduino) ==> (home's wireless router) ==> (PHP website that contains ""#009900").
Once I'm able to get my Arduino to retrieve "#009900" it will then send this color to the RGB lights. Can someone please give me some guidance as to what wireless shields I may need (the cheaper the better too!).
THANK YOU! :)
