Essentially i have been working with an Arduino Nano. figuring out how the overall architecture should be developed to enable goals to be set in terms of programming and what's required.
Arduino Nano's are not WIFI enabled and require a shield but some of these shield do not have a built in WebServer unless you also get the Ethernet shield. Then along comes the ESP8266
Wiring the two together so we can start communicating via Serial to Wifi Communication. there is a good blog post http://www.martyncurrey.com/arduino-to-esp8266-serial-commincation/ here on how to do that..
More to come...
