Microsoft Azure is cool. It's an easy way to get an IoT project off the ground. The Azure Sphere Starter Kit is a great place to begin too. However, getting to that easy part is a journey. I've put together this guide to help people get started with a "hello word" kind of IoT project. I will step you all though the circuitous procedure of setting up a Azure account all the way through testing the project.   The project was a simple idea: detect vibration and send an alert. I want to do som ...
Introduction   Hi! When i got this handy little devkit i my hands i immediately thought of a project that would be ideal for a web-enabled device: An automatic gardener! So i went and bought some little pumps on the internet that would later serve as core of this system. But days passed and ordered parts would not show up at my doorstep. So i decided instead on documenting at least some parts of my project. So in this blog post i will show you how to quickly develop a case for your Azure S ...
Thanks to Element14, AVnet and Microsoft for bring me up this oportunity to test and put in a real world application the Azure Sphere MT3620 Starter kit. Specially all the people who was made it!!. cftEnergy is a project to introduce IoT tecnologies in class-room sessions. Technical Focus: From this advanced tutorial: Avnet Azure Sphere Starter-Kit: Advanced Tutorial and this course in Hackster.io - Azure Sphere TechnicalTrainig Course -: https://www.hackster.io/workshops/azure-sphere-course ...
Hello all,   So I think I'm going to try to build a device that encompasses these design goals:   1. Monitors the following (minimum) parameters of your home on a continuous basis: indoor temperature status of power to the home (from the electric company) status of the furnace or AC 2. Is connected to the internet and has the ability to send either an SMS message or email alert if any of the following occur: loss of power to the home (electricity goes out) indoor temp drops bel ...
Introduction  One of the really nice things about developing your secure IoT product with Azure Sphere is that Microsoft has implemented all the hooks and OS Services for your Azure Sphere application to leverage Azure IoT Hub features for Cloud to Device (C2D) communication/control.  Three common D2C tools available from Azure IoT Hubs are Device Twins, Remote Messages, and Direct Method calls.  This blog will introduce the reader to Direct Method calls.   What is a Direct ...

After my first blog yesterday, I have being finding resources on how to start developing IoT with it. this blog #1 is mainly to document all the resources   This image from https://www.element14.com/community/themes/images/2019/AzureSphereMD_BlockDiagram.png  shows the starter kit in a pictorial way.       Tutorial wise, I have decided to start follow these Avnet's Azure Sphere Starter-Kit (Out of Box Demo) Part 1 of 3 this is a 3 part series from Reference Design ...
I presume for Azure Sphere i need to use Microsoft Azure. I have used Azure before but am not using it right now. I have decide to do some reading about IoT with microsoft.   coincidentally, few days ago i borrowed a Windows 10 IoT book from library hence i spent the day flipping through it. It gives me the impression that i need to use IoT Hub. From my last experience, the most difficult thing with Azure, other than the documentation that is like a maze, is its unpredictable pricing. I ...
this is my first blog to phase 1 of azure sphere challenge These are the steps to start. After installing the Azure Sphere SDK, start it command prompt, connect the starter kit and type the command azsphere device show-status in screenshot above, everything is unknown and disconnected. This is expected. to use it we need to claim the device by typing command azsphere device claim   then we use command azsphere device wifi add --ssid <my ssid> --key <password> . it cannot a ...
Here are steps to get started   1) install Azure Sphere SDK by following instruction on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure-sphere/install/install in short, we need visual studio 2019 or 2017. Upon plug in we get 3 com port   from visual studio 2019, extension , search, download (156MB) and install it 2) we need to check the azure os to see if it needs an os update https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure-sphere/install/install-os I initially fail this and I find out that ...
As many are discovering the "Add Connected Service" utility is not working in Visual Studio 2019.  It works just fine in Visual Studio 2017, so if that's an option you can go that route.   The graphics below capture documentation that walk you through how to find the information required for your Azure Sphere app_manifest.json file that the "Add Connected Service" utility adds for you.   Brian     ...
Here at Avnet, we've been working hard to create Azure Sphere content to help developers jump start their Azure Sphere projects.  I wanted to create this blog to capture all the content we've developed as well as some links to Microsoft resources.  As we add more content, I'll update this blog.  So bookmark this blog and check back periodically to see what's new from the Avnet team.   Element14 Content  Out-of-Box Examples These blogs are a great starting point for learn ...
Avnet just released an MT3620 Azure Sphere Development Kit with a contest related to it. This is my entry for this contest which took me around 30h to complete.  Feel free to find the source code at: https://github.com/thebillkidy/PublicProjects/tree/master/C/AzureSphere-Avnet-E2E-Project note that most of the code is custom written or rewritten (in case of libraries that did not support this SPI interface) to be suitable for this contest and the Avnet MT3620 development kit.
