The Arduino is compatible with a lot of shields and other components. In this example we are going to build an Arduino program and use the Arduino "Serial Monitor" for reading and sending information on the PC. This makes it possible to control your Arduino remotely. It has a line of sight distance up top meter at bps what is suitable for most projects.

Firefighting Robots Wireless Arduino The Arduino is compatible with a lot of shields and other components. This makes it possible to control your Arduino remotely. It has a line of sight distance up top meter at bps what is suitable for most projects. The APC modules are small only 38 mm by 19 mm.
Power consumption is low 5uA in sleeping mode till 42mA transmitting at 20mW. We are going to control a led and read the status of a switch with the wireless connection. The test board has the APC module, a switch with a 10k pull down resistor and a led with a Ohm resistor. Everything is connected to an Arduino Uno with an USB power supply to power this project instead of a conventional power supply. We only use 4 pins from the APC Two pins to power the module and two pins for sending and receiving information.
Compile and Upload the following code onto your Arduino. Before uploading the sketch onto your Arduino you have to disconnect the APC On the computer the Serial Monitor from the Arduino software is used. The switch will send a message when change state.
Please take a look at the suppliers website. You can control the LED by sending a 1 on or a 0 off. After changing the state of the switch the Serial Monitor will display a message. I made a video to show you what the program should do.
