I like to controll my windmill via Email comunication, so that the neighbors can turn on the breaks, if there are nerved by the sound.
I know there is an example, which do a little bit of it, but I don't know how to add other scripts, so it work just fine.
So what I like is:
-sending an email, only with an subject like on, off or status
-arduino check every 5min. whether there are a new Email
-if there are a new email, read subject
if there stand: on, off or status do some subprograms
-do an Email reply, with maybe "WILCO and this is the Status:" (Status)
-arduino check the rotation speed an the gear/ generator temperatur and should react, if it's not in the normal operation area (to high speed,..).
I thought about another option, by an webserver, but you only can control it in the area of your wifi and so on your neighbors can't stop the windmill.
I hope there are someone how do something similar and can help me.
by the way, I like to use the Arduino Pro Mini (5v or 3,3v - which is more meaningful?) and an ESP8266 modul ( and sensors, servo,...). So it's compact and efficient - it'll run every single day.
