View Full Version : Internet Connected PIC and Push notification to iPhone

- 27th January 2011, 17:28
Haven't been here for a while, but a recent Arduino project got me thinking to see if the same was possible using a PIC.

It basically uses a Arduino that is connected to the net to send push notifications to an iPhone when an event occurs.

Here is the project.


Having worked with PICs a while back, wanted to see if similar was achievable using a PIC instead of a Arduino.

Nothing special there just a Serial to Ethernet module connected to the mcu.

Thanks for your reply.

Any suggestions that are cheap and have a small footstamp so more than one can be used in multiple projects.

A module is a good alternative, but was wondering if there were component based options to add to a PCB with the MCU.

Thanks again,

I guess you could do the components if you had several to do. 100+ ?? Modules are tested and if you go wifi the FCC may have something to say ...

This thread talks about a few options. Kind of long... http://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=11883
I use the ConnectOne for no real good reason...
This is a demo I did. The code is not pretty but should be understandable...

Thanks for the relpy Dave.

It appears a lot of the downloads are now not available and I'm surprised a lot of these articles are 3-5 years old.

As the downloads are no longer working, wonder if anyone has these files?

I am basically wanting a PIC to call a web php page from the Internet.

So just need a simple solution of connecting a PIC to the Internet to 'call' this PHP. Once called the php script does the rest.

Many thanks.
