The design of the controller is based on an HTML page loaded on an Arduino UNO + Ethernet Shield and connected to an IP address of the home network .
The controller , via interface with buttons , can control the switching of lights, music and engines.
Page interface can be accessed by unlocking the router for external access to the local network, even from devices such as smartphone , tablet or PC outside the local network.
The " Christmas Base" includes :
- a DC motor , powered by a 9V battery , for the rotation of Santa Claus
- a buzzer , to play the song " Jingle Bells "
- an LED , for light intermittently
The project is thought to have individual authorizations , if you enable all enable the "Christmas Station" becomes a Carillon.
Obviously it's just a prototype to demonstrate the many devices that the unit could handle.
