Arduino Webserver Control Lights, Relays, Servos, Etc...




About: Author, Blogger, Electronics Enthusiast and Entrepreneur. For complete Electronics Projects and Tutorials go to:
In this project using only an Arduino with an Ethernet shield.
I’ll be controlling one LED and a servo, but you can apply this method to control a DC motors, buzzers, relays, stepper motors, etc..


When you upload the the code provided in this tutorials. 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: “” the arduino will read that information and It turns the LED On.

By default the IP is “″. That also can be found on the Arduino code provided.
The Webpage will look like the image on the attachments.

Check this Video tutorial below ! (Includes demonstration)

Just create a DynDNS name, set it in your router, and create a NAT to your web server.
from your 4G device simply type the dyndns name.


Question 1 year ago

What if that IP is already in use on some network? Is there any method to assign a dynamic IP and then detect that IP on through android/java/js(through any other language, on another machine)?

Dear Sir
many thanks for your valuable site
is there any simple project for one led web control using meag2560+enc28c60 Ethernet module knowing that i ha succeed to run two leds using arduino uno with the same Ethernet module but regarding mega2560 i was unable to find any simple project on the web unless using an ethernet module equipped with an SD card which i don't have for now.

Great job, I just wondering once Arduino programed, is USB connection still needed or it can be controlled just by network cable over web?, thanks

hey, very nice project !

can i do this with ENC28J60?

its basically has the same eternet function but i dont know which line code i should change to make this works, thanks in advance

Hi.. I have to add more buttons and readings on the page. I know there will no enough space in the arduino. How can I modify this code and host the page in SD card.

No you can use your home ip and foward ports to port 80 on the arduino


Reply 3 years ago

Super helpful, thank you!! I've always wondered how to control the MKR1000 from the web, this seems like a great way! Is it possible to put a login on Port 80 for security? Is that somewhere in my router settings?
