Arduino Multi Function shield Dear Kashif Baig, First of all, I would like to thank you for your excellent documentation, electrical diagrams and example sketches of the Multi Function shield. But I also want to ask you for some help. By a local webstore I accidentally made notice of the Arduino shield.
After some Googling I began to wonder whether I could make my own controller and began investigating how the existing wireless programmer might function. After removing the programmer from its wall mounting plate I immediately noticed a sticker indicating it operated using MHz.
Thankfully this is part of the unlicensed spectrum meaning transmitters are likely to be readily available. I immediately bought myself an Arduino, some cables, a breadboard and waited eagerly for everything to arrive.
With my logic analyser built Bitwrite arduino example then proceeded to install Audacity and begin trying to record the data sent by my wireless programmer.
I started recording and turned up the heating, it was immediately apparent that something had recorded as once transmission completed there was a ms radio silence: According to the Steven Hale, the same person who provided the details for creating the logic analyser, these little MHz radios have gain control — once they detect nothing they try to boost the signal which is why we get the ms radio silence and then noise.
If you try to reproduce this recording, you are looking for three repeats of the same transmission. Since the wireless programmer has no receive capability it must blindly transmit and hope for the best, so it does this three times.
Zooming in yet further I could finally see the transmission data: The next step was to count the number of samples to determine how long I needed my radio to transmit for, requiring yet more zooming. I counted the number of samples and repeated this until the ms of radio silence at the end: I then multiplied these values by 5.
The next step was then to wire up the MHz transmitter I bought from eBay to my Arduino and try and reproduce these signals. I ran some code I wrote in the days leading up to delivery and to my surprise it worked first time, a sample version of this can be found below. Used to actively control the Arduino board.
The next steps are to setup an ethernet connection and have the Arduino run some webservices and a temperature sensor, which I can consume from another device.

SIK Experiment Guide for Arduino - V bitWrite(data,desiredPin,desiredState); //Change desired bit to 0 or 1 in "data" // Now we'll actually send that data to the shift register.
Sometimes we want to manipulate these bits directly, for example now when we’re sending eight bits to the shift register and we want to make them 1 or 0 to. BMA accelerometer Bluetooth accelerometer. The Bluetooth accelerometer is made on the basis of the Arduino Nano platform, the ADXL accelerometer module and HM Bluetooth module supporting Bluetooth LE (HC, HC modules CANNOT be used).
Hi all, my plan is to call a spark function which accepts a string, turn “5” into a int 5 and then use bitRead to identify if individual bits are turned on or off (I use the integer for a 16 channel input so to say).
