Internet of Things – Use Actuators In BlueMix

Today I will talk about how you can use actuators in BlueMix. I will build further on the app that monitor the temperature and light sensors in my room, and this time it will publish MQTT messages on the broker that is picked up by and viewed on an LCD display.   This video build on my previous video called “Internet of Things – Use Sensor Data In BlueMix”, so please check that out for details on how to use sensor data in BlueMix. In this video, I will modify the Node-RED application to send the output messages to another…

Internet of Things in the Public Sector

Today I will talk about you how the Internet of Things can be used in the public sector, and I will show you how reports on pollen levels can be shared with the public in an efficient and fun way using a smart and connected device.   For people who are allergic to pollen (like myself) the periods with high levels can be challenging, and it becomes important to be prepared with medication and other remedies when that happens. Most countries have web sites and even apps to keep track of pollen levels, but they are easily forgotten, so what…

InduSoft Web Studio and MQTT for Internet of Things Applications

The Internet of Things requires disparate systems and device-level components to speak to one another seamlessly. However, this level of communication between so many different possible combinations of hardware has been a major challenge to the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) architectures. But with lightweight connectivity protocols like MQTT becoming standardized and gateway software like InduSoft Web Studio providing a communication hub, the Internet of Things might be much easier to implement.  

Losant Internet of Things: Builder Kit [1/3]

First part of the Losant Internet of Things playlist. Builder Kit is basically a hello world for IoT, where you press a button and a device connects to the Internet and does something. In this case I use an Adafruit Feather Huzzah and post messages through email, SMS, and Slack. You can also debug through serial in the Arduino application, and an intro to Losant’s dashboards and workflows is given.  

Internet of Things – Big Data Analytics Demo

Collecting an enormous amount of event data over the Internet, then evaluating it in real time – as it continues to flow into the system – executing on the data predictive analysis, e.g. To receive automatic action suggestions and then redirect the data stream into cost-effective storage formats for long-term evaluation – all this can be called the Advanced Analytics platform in Microsoft Azure, also known as Cortana Analytics.   In this practical demo video, which refers specifically to the transport logistics, Microsoft once presented how such a complete solution can handle it, if there are problems in the delivery…

Using Eclipse and Lua for the Internet of Things with projects Koneki, Mihini and Paho

The Internet of Things (IoT) or Machine to Machine (M2M), is a technological field that will radically change the global network by enabling the communication of virtually every single object with each other. Studies state that more than 50 billions objects may be connected to the Internet by 2020. In a near future, everything from a light bulb to a power plant, from a pacemaker to an hospital, from a car to a road network will be part of the Internet.   While this revolution is already happening (your house or your car may be “connected” already!), there are still…

#33 Internet of Things with ESP8266 #5: Watchdogs, Timers & Stability

In this tutorial I show and explain how to create your own watchdog to stabilize your ESP8266 “Thing”. It is applicable for all modules like ESP-01, ESP-07 and ESP12 /ESP-12E.   And I show different concepts of writing responsive code without using the delay(); statement.   You will also find a very brief introduction to interrups and timers including the ticker library.  

Internet of Things – Publish To BlueMix

Today I will talk about how you can publish your sensor data to BlueMix in the IBM cloud. I will publish information about the temperature and level of light in my room, and then I will show how that information can be viewed in real-time.   This video build on my previous video called “Internet of Things – Publish Sensor Data”, so please check that out for details. Just as in that video, I’m will be using temperature and light sensors, and publish their data to an MQTT broker.  

Internet of Things – Publish Sensor Data

Today I will talk about how you can publish your sensor data to an MQTT broker. I will publish information about the temperature and level of light in my room, but the same approach can be used to publish any sensory data.   By publishing the sensor data using an MQTT broker, the information can be made available to a number of different consumers. It could be a physical panel showing the readings on a LED display or a dashboard on a web page, and it could even be a mobile app that is available on different mobile platforms. The…

Pinoccio Internet of Things IR Remote Demo.

This is a demonstration of an IR remote control that can be controlled over a simple webpage interface. Is based on the new Pinoccio platform in my IRLib Library for Sending, Receiving, and Decoding Infrared Signals for Arduino. As this is being uploaded, the source code is not yet available for the Pinoccio port of my library but it should be within a few days. The library itself for other Arduino-based platforms is available at GitHub  

Internet of things-Standalone ESP8266 ,switch by Android phone

For EEE, ECE, ESP8266 ,Stand alone not requiring any Arduino or microcontroller or bluetooth, driving mains load through Android application from any smart phone in home WiFi network.The biggest advantage is that it has user configurable SSID and password for the WiFi network in contrast to many program where WiFi ID and password are hard coded thus are not user friendly but dedicated to use in the same network only.The cost also is within Rs 500/- in INR or $6 in total for all the material
