|The Monthly Theme You Voted For: IoT: In the Cloud|
|Project14 | IoT in the Cloud: Make Use of a Wireless Technology and a Cloud Provider!|
The theme this month is IoT: In the Cloud and the idea comes from tonydbeck is challenge allows you to build any projects that make use of a wireless technology and a cloud provider (AWS, Google Cloud, io.adafruit, Dweet, Blynk, Cayenne - My Devices, Particle, etc). Projects could include cloud connected home security system, Environmental monitoring (Temp, humidity, air quality etc), Industrial data logger with online data logging, baggage tracker utilising GPS and Sigfox network, Smart garage door opener, Energy monitoring, and more. It also coincides with Arduino Day, last year we celebrated Arduino Day with Open Arduino , an open ended Arduino competition. This year, Arduino Day is on March 16th, so we are dedicating this project theme to Arduino Day by including an Arduino IoT Grand Prize kit and Arduino IoT kits for the first place finishers. If you are just getting started with IoT projects, we encourage you to check out Arduino Projects for Arduino Day 2019: Arduino MKR Projects in the Cloud! where you'll find an overview of how to get started with an Arduino IoT project using the Arduino IoT Cloud, currently in beta. Currently it supports an the Arduino MKR 1000 board, the MKR 1010 board, and the Arduino GSM 1400 board. In the future you will also be able to connect to the Arduino Cloud service using the Arduino MKR Vidor 1400 boards, as well as, the always popular Arduino Uno.
You're free to use whatever hardware or cloud service platform you choosing. Some more examples of IoT projects you can create include automatic pet feeders, mini-lifts, smart thermostats, robots, soil moisture level monitors, and solar power meters. IoT, is short for the Internet of Things, and refers to the ability to connect physical devices to the internet. In the past, Wifi modules such as Xbee, because of cost and degree of difficulty, were a barrier for many people wanting to do IoT projects. Then came the ESP8266, which is a really popular choice for IoT projects. You could for example use an ESP8266 with IFTTT service to open up a world of possibilities for your IoT project.
