Step 1: Start project materials
The hardware requirements to start is:
*Note: where can I purchase the material with all the components to build myself the system:
1.-) Arduino UNO with USB cable
2.-) Ethernet Shield Arduino
3.-) Relay (for arduino 5 V)
4.-) Router Belkin (we recommend N150 or N300), also TPLink models( we recommend TL-WR740N). See TPLink model configutarion: http://iwup.altervista.org/shop/tplinkconfiguration.pdf
5.-) Arduino Case (optional, not necessary)
The software requirements to start is:
1.-) Arduino v0022 IDE you can download here: http://arduino.googlecode.com/files/arduino-0022.dmg
2.-) Open Your Garage project firmware, called “openyourgarage_arduino.pde”, you can download here: http://iwup.altervista.org/shop/openyourgarage_arduino.pde.zip
3.-) Open Your Garage vPRO iOS App.
1.-) Welder 25-30 W.
2.-) Cable for soldering connectors.
Also I recommend, if you like mobile programming and you want to start from level 0, purchase my new book "How to create your first iPhone App, turning your idea into App easily" that will be released next month of September 2013. You can make a preorder : http://www.how2appbook.com
Step 2: Upload the software to our Arduino UNO module
But before that we need to install Arduino IDE or application in our computer.
For that copy the Arduino application into the Applications folder (or elsewhere on your computer). You don't have any drivers to install. Skip ahead to the next step.
Launch Arduino application with double click.
For this purpose we run the software that you downloaded in step 1. Once run a screen as seen below. In the "Tools" tab we select our board which will be the Arduino Uno.
