| No Comments

Good overview of wireless communication from SparkFun.

Here are a number of possibilities of ways to communicate wirelessly with (or without) an Arduino:

RF Link module

Transmitter (connected to an AVR microcontroller, or ATiny or Arduino to create a pulse), $3.95
Receiver (connected to an Arduino), discontinued?

Optional antenna
Transceiver breakout board

How-to with AVR microcontroller

How-to with Arduino
Another how-to with Arduino

JeeNode transceiver (can connect to Arduino, but also has a built-in processor)
$22.50 each
434 MHz or 915 MHz
Needs to assemble -- kit comes with all of the parts.
