control Arduino in real time from remote computer

by sela on Sun Oct 07, 2012 7:24 pm

I would like to use Adruino to remote control divice in my home. I plan to log into my home desktop (wich is connected to the Adruino with the USB cable) from a remote computer using LogMeIn or a like. Then I want to activate specific relays on the adruino from the remote computer.

Can I do it? Tnx.

Yes. There are a number of approaches to doing this. The Firmata library is one popular method: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/Firmata

I am new to this game, and need more help. If someone can post very simple example of on/off swich of one of the erduino outputs by the computer keyboard I will appreciate it. Thanks you, Sela.
