In this project i'm going to control led's trough a webpages. You can open your browser and control the led's.
The code provided when uploaded and connected to the internet it creates a webserver in your LAN and you simply use the IP to access that webserver through your browser. After that it shows a webpage similar to that one below. When you press the button “Turn On LED” your url will change to: “http://192.168.1.177/?button1on” the arduino will read that information and It turns the LED On.
By default the IP is “192.168.1.177”. That also can be found on the arduino code provided.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: You Can Watch the Video!
You can watch this video or you can skip this video and go to step 2.
Step 2: Hardware
plug in the ethernet shield into your arduino. Connect your led's to digital pin 6. Make sure you use a resistor if you need one.
Step 3: Code
Upload the code. the files are here http://bit.ly/1jWYhJt.
Step 4: The Internet Page
When you have pluged in your Arduino you need to go to the page were you can control the led's. type in your webpage the folowing link: 192.168.1.177 if this one is not working you can go to the serial monitor of your arduino. There you can read your adress.
