This book is an exploration of programming in Arduino. The first part of the book helps you get started with Arduino. You will learn what Arduino is, and for what purposes it is used. You are then guided on how to setup the Arduino software on your system. Steps for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux are given. Sketches, variables, and procedures are discussed, and thus you will know how to use these when programming your Arduino boards. You are guided on how to use the Serial Library and Binary Data in Arduino. You are also guided on how to setup buttons, switches, resistors, and get digital inputs in Arduino. You will also learn how to program these so that they can provide a number of functionalities. A number of Arduino projects are also explored in this book. The book also guides you on how to come up with a keyless door lock system. This is a system which will grant and deny access to users who need to open the door and gain entrance. The user will be required to enter the pin on a keyboard, and this will be compared to the keys stored in EEPROM. This will determine if the user is granted or denied access. You are also guided on how to control access by use of Arduino and RFID (Radio Frequency Identifier Device). In this case, we will not use the keyboard to type the pin, but we will be using the RFID.The following topics are examined in this book:-Getting Started with Arduino-Sketches, Variables, and Procedures-Serial Library and Binary Data-Buttons, Switches, Digital Inputs, and Resistors-Keyless Door Lock System in Arduino-Access Control with RFID and Arduino-Weighing Plate

Remote Sensor Monitoring by Radio with Arduino: Detecting Intruders, Fires, Flammable and Toxic Gases, and Other Hazards at a Distance
This book is about connecting sensors and radio transceivers to an Arduino so that you can monitor the sensor readings from a distance. You can put the Arduino sensor package miles away from the receiving station, in your front or back yard, or even in your home like your basement or attic. Although the techniques described in this book will work with any type of sensor input, the book will focus on sensors that detect potentially dangerous or disruptive conditions. These will include intruders, fires, temperature extremes (both hot and cold), flammable gases, toxic gases like pollution, power failures, floods (including minor “floods” like a pipe bursting), and other situations. For the radio communications, we will use the nRF24L01 transceiver. This inexpensive chip (usually around $1.00 on EBay) interfaces easily with the Arduino and can both transmit and receive data. It has an advertised range of 100 meters (about 328 feet) for the basic unit, although in actual practice it may be closer to 30 meters (about 98 feet). However, with an optional antenna the range is reported to be 1,000 meters (1 km, about .6 miles). In the first five chapters, I explain the hardware and software aspects of this handy transceiver, enabling you to set up the communications. I even explain how to set up repeater transmitters that can relay the signal from locations beyond the 1 km range. Thus, this books provides ideas for how to use the nRF24L01 transceiver for many purposes. In the chapters after these five chapters on the basics of the nRF24L01, I discuss attaching and operating various sensors, explaining how to set them up and integrate them into the transmission software. The chapters will be divided by hazards you can monitor, not specific sensors, so one chapter may include several different types of sensors that can be used to detect the same hazard. Note: This book has been rewritten to correct the errors reported in some reviews. Mistakes in code have been corrected so all sketches compile now, grammatical mistakes corrected, etc. The main sketches in this book can be downloaded from any of these URLshttps://github.com/DavidLeithauser/remote-sensors-Arduino/tree/masterhttp://LeithauserResearch.com/RemoteSensors.ziphttp://lrfiles.com/RemoteSensors.ziphttps://app.box.com/s/xsf7e6gsof5jteijvcq7zd38cfwcu53rSee the ReadMe.txt file in the archive for advice on using the files.All of the sketches in this book have been tested and work as described.
