This is my first post and my first foray into arduino so any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a project in mind and I want to know if it is possible with the arduino or not. I want to create a standalone module that contains either a button switch or an infrared sensor with either a wireless or bluetooth module as communciation tool. This stand alone module will be in one part of the house (ie garage). Now I want this stand alone module to be able to communicate with the base arduino that is stationed in another part of my house (ie living room). I want the base arduino to read the input from the module in the garage and output a simple website. I know that I would need an Arduino Ethernet Shield to create a web server. However, I'm not sure what I would need to create that stand alone module in the garage. Please let me know some of the components I would need to do this or if this is even possible.
Thanks in advance!
