Hello i got my Fez Cobra and some sensors. I am making a new topic here in the project section.

I am messing around with the sensors doing examples etc.

I have a question. When i want to upload values of temperature , humidity and other data on a website that i will make (mysql/php or asp.net/mssql dunno yet) what method on NETMF do i have to use? I suppose i will use ethernet for the transfer.

any ideas?

You can use raw tcp sockets or better use http class


#3

WebRequest is easy to use. Check the following article on Wiki

Did anyone use a camera on Cobra?

I want to get a servo motor and plug a camera on it to monitor outside of the house and control it through cobra. any thoughts?


#5

so any ideas about what to use?

Will cobra be able store/buffer any video? Or if it can’t video, at least image every 1sec or w/e?

You can use an IP camera…or wifi camera

See this old video (you will not use PPP but the camera code will work the same way) http://www.microframeworkprojects.com/index.php?title=PPP_IP_Camera
