I'm trying to categorize the devices to help me develope device classes for programming.

I'm sure I'm missing something on the list. Let me know. I don't know salt water tanks too much.
Filter shouldn't be on that list. It's always on.

For those curious to what this is for, it's to design code where the user can create objects/"code" when they add a device to the I2C bus on the fly, through the interface without cracking open the code in the arduino and recompiling. It's plug n play.

I went ahead and bought the UNO rev 3 and wifi shield. Total $128 (shipped).
Hope the uno is up to the memory usage :)

Just realized you didn't have CO2 solenoid on that list, unless you meant relay was that.

Yeah, I thought the same thing but realized a solenoid is basically a relay. I'll call it relay/solenoid in the menu interface.

I'll leave generic device categories for people to choose for devices I haven't thought of or they can add their own code for really sophisticate devices like something that would read weather data or something.

I received the WIFI shield and UNO today.

I quickly set up a web server example:
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/WiFiWebServer

Image

It's reading the analog pins and printing to the web page. The IP is a local IP. If you want this page available to the WWW, you'd have to punch a hole in your router (port forwarding) and point it to the Arduino's IP. If you're into network gaming like Minecraft, you know what I mean :)

It was darn easy to set up.

The next step is to play with I2C. I'm waiting for my Real Time Clock.

not trying to take away from jarduino or the ardunio product itself i have put most of mine together have it working as well as a web server on an UNO the other on a MEGA. i did look into the rasberry PI and i think it has wifi and other things built in. i think i might go this route as well perhaps.
doc

did not mean to hijack the thread i will be using probalbly both the arduino as well as seeing about the rasberry Pi stuff when i get one. i love to tinker

Let us know how the pi turns out. The lack of support might be a problem with it.

I've been playing with the I2C connections. The UNO has dedicated SDA & SCL pins so you don't have to use the analog pins. My RTC arrived and had a spare CO2 sensor so I connected them together. The code is out of the box. You enter in letters in the serial monitor to set and retrieve values.
