Wireless Control

I'm controlling a small 12v dc motor with PWM and Arduino.

I would like to change the frequency on the fly via a smartphone from about 5ft away. The frequency is hard coded in the sketch.

Would it be best to use Blue Tooth, Wi-FI or a PHPoC Shield?

What sketch?
What model Arduino are you using?
Please read the first post in any forum entitled how to use this forum.

Then look down to item #7 about how to post your code.
It will be formatted in a scrolling window that makes it easier to read.

I suspect you mean the PWM value (0 to 255) rather than the PWM frequency, but please clarify.

Do you already have a smartphone program to send data to the Arduino? Does that use Bluetooth or WiFi?

If you don’t have a smartphone program then you will need to get or create one.

To my mind Bluetooth is probably simplest as it is just Serial-By-Wireless.
