Re: Comm interface/cabling issue

Someone must have removed it already and I ended up deleting the parent. here is the original post:

I have this really big project( I hope to post it in a couple of weeks) that I am working on and I want to monitor it in real time. Ideally I would like to use xbee but my units are old and might be toasted and I don't really have the time. The project will be a couple feet outside my big sliding glass door on the porch.

I don't know if it possible to run a usb cable through the seams of the door. I thought some sort of IR solution might be possible but that would cost time and money I don't have right now.

If I can get the cable through the door I can put a laptop next to it to receive the data.

Any ideas?
