Motion sensor controlled lights over the internet.

Hello,

I am thinking of buying an arduino for a project, but I thought it would be good to know whether what I want is possible or not. I’ve searched around a bit on the forums but haven’t seen what I am looking for as of yet.

When a motion sensor is activated, I want a set of tube-lights to turn on for a period of 5 seconds in a different city.

Is this possible?

Just in case I’ve added an image of what I’m planning to do.

Thank you for the help!!

You should basically be able to make such a setup using an arduino client and an arduino server. Study the arduino ethernet code examples.

hi,

If you are using an IP camera, wouldn´t it be easier to just use an IP cam which provides inputs and outputs? You can wire a PIR Sensor to the IN and a solidstate-relais to the out.
No need for seperate coding or a server... Depending on the camera you will also be able to swith on/off the lights remotely over a browser...
I did somthin similar with some PTZ Cameras in a railway-tunnel.
If you are interested in such a solution feel free to ask me.
