Thank you both for the replays.
What I meant on sketch is that the Omega is attached to the arduino dock, I want to be able to use the Omega as a RTC (Real-Time-Clock) in sketches, since it is wifi/net connected and will keep perfect time. I hoping no additional hardware is needed.
For further more understanding of what I am trying to accomplish; I want to put together a sprinkler/irrigation system and garden lights sensor/timer for my home.
I know what you maybe thinking, there is a ton of resources out there that I can use to accomplish this. I have been searching and reading alot of forums and getting their information; yet, none of it is actually complete information, just bits and pieces and alot of unanswered responses.
I like the fact that I can send information to the arduino via wifi through the omega, makes it easier to get my sketches out to the location that I would like to put my setup. I know there are other ways to do so with just an adruino and wifi/BLE hardware, but I feel this method is easier for me.
I hoping if I'm able to gather all the information and get it working, I can post the hardware and code I used for others to use so that it is almost a plug and play ready system. Maybe someone has already done this with the Omega, I just couldn't find it.
Here is some of my questions:
(As stated above) Is there away to use the Omega and the wifi as a Real-Time-Clock when attached to the arduino dock. I am trying to control an 8 relay board and a 4 channel Mosfet PWM board
Through the terminal on the homepage of the Omega (when plugged into the arduino dock) can a command like blink LED on pin 13 be done live or does there need to be a sketch uploaded to the arduino dock for blink LED on pin 13? I am just trying to get further clarification on how the
Omega and the arduino dock are able to communicate with each other.
I am not really sure how to word this without any confusion. From my understanding, that when a sketch is running on the arduino, that nothing else can happen until the current process is over. Example, my garden lights turn on at a specific time or through a light sensor at dusk, but because the lights are on from the use of a sketch that is controlling the lights, that I can't have my sprinklers run at 2100 hours. Am I correct for understanding it this way? Hope no one got lost in that question.
