This demonstration app allows REMOTE interaction with the Phidgets 8/8/8 Interface kit from your Android device via a local (home wireless) or wide-area (free-wifi, GPRS, 3G, EDGE, HSDPA etc) network. In short this allows you to REMOTELY control the interface kit from ANY location where you have a wireless network connection.
Applications include (with appropriate hardware):
- Remotely switching of lights, heaters, pumps, valves and much more
- Remotely sensing temperature, voltage, position sensing and much more
Please note the following:
-You need additional Phidgets hardware (www.phidgets.com)for this app to be any use.
- Your Phidget devices MUST be available through the WebPhidget service. (USB support not currently available in Android)
-BETA release. Use at your own risk!
-Tested on HTC Desire Z. If you download onto another device I'd appreciate your feedback on problems you have but please note the known issues below.
Your feedback is appreciated.
