Since I got into Home Automation System, I have always wanted a central system with as much as information about me starting from my food habit to each and everything that can be measured or collected. You can say that it is greatly influenced by JARVIS of Iron Man which came around my Engineering days. Coming to the topic, I recently managed to connect a regular bathroom weighing scale to my Home Automation System (OpenHAB) using MQTT. So basically this post is all about how to do that. For the ...
To test out the recent addition in my lab that is the LoRa gateway, I needed one LoRa node also. LoRa modules are available to be used with Arduino as well as Raspberry Pi and are pretty cheap too. However, you can get complete LoRa module with ESP32 and OLED display at pretty low price from Banggood, and they fit the purpose. And by using these, you don't need to jumble around jumpers. In this post, I have covered how to make a simple, cheap LoRa node that can send data to The Things Network(TT ...
Lately, I have been working with LoRAWAN and I don't have Lora gateway around. As you might be knowing LoRAWAN network requires a gateway to push data to the internet. As Lora is not an IP based protocol the gateway helps it in doing so. Basically, multiple LoRAWAN nodes transmit data to the gateway and the gateway transfers the concentrated data to server backend. Server backend which resides in the cloud contains a network server which helps in managing the network and the application server w ...
               Recently Arduino has launched support for programming ARM-based SBCs by using the Arduino web editor and Raspberry Pi is one of the SBCs in the list. This video is all about the basic setup to get started with the programming of the Raspberry Pi GPIOs by using Arduino codes. The setup is pretty simple and will help you if you are more comfortable in the Arduino ecosystem as compared to python. More in depth func ...
This video is around ESP8266 module and how to flash mongoose OS to it.It also demonstrates some basic GPIO programming using javascript.Mongoose OS claims as an Operating System for commercial connected products with features like Security, OTA Updates, Remote Management. As Arduino framework is not reliable to run in production environment its a good alternative with  Arduino compatibility layer that allows using existing Arduino drivers for prototyping. It is both C/C++ ready for product ...
                    This is a simple project to make IOT enabled power outlet. This video is around WeMOS and demonstrates how to use WeMOS with thingspeak to control some loads in my home. This project lets you control your devices which you need to connect to the output sockets. As an online server, I have used Thinspeak.com but you can use any server but you just need REST API. Check out the video t ...
In this video, we will see the specs of the module, Configure using the web interface, will access the terminal using SSH. Now coming on to the board this comes is two flavors those are Linkit Smart 7688 and Linkit Smart DUO.Over here what I am having is the DUO module.The difference between both is that the DUO has an ATMEGA324 controller apart from the main MPU which can be programmed using Arduino. Checking out the board on the front side u get 2 Micro USB socket out of which the top one acts ...

DHT12 its a temperature sensor with a 1-Wire and I2C interface to connect with external controllers and having 1-Wire interf ...
This is the third video in the series "IOT with Raspberry Pi" and that's using JAVA. The series comprises of Sensor interfacing using pi4J, REST API usage with JAVA, MQTT usage with JAVA and finally adding all to the same project and running over Raspberry Pi. last two videos shows how to interface DS18B20 1 wire temperature sensor with Raspberry Pi and send data to Thingspeak by using REST API with JAVA. If you have not checked those you can do that with the links down below. This video is the ...
  This video is around Raspberry Pi to showcase the usage of Raspberry Pi in IOT projects and that's using JAVA. This is going to be a series of video including Sensor interfacing using pi4J, REST API usage with JAVA, MQTT usage with JAVA and finally adding all to the same project and running over Raspberry Pi. In the last video, we saw how to interface DS18B20 1 wire temperature sensor with Raspberry Pi by using JAVA. If you have not checked it out you can do that and for that, I have prov ...
The NanoPi S2(S2) is designed and developed by FriendlyElec for professionals, enterprise users, makers, and hobbyists. It is a small board with WiFi, Bluetooth, and eMMC. It uses the Samsung Quad Core Cortex-A9 S5P4418 SoC with dynamic frequency scaling up to 1.4GHz. It has 1G DDR3 RAM, 802.11 b/g
WiFi & Bluetooth 4.0 module. Its inbuilt power management unit uses the AXP228 chip which supports software shutdown. It takes power over the MicroUSB port. It has video input/output interface, ...
This tutorial is all about making a WiFi based information display system. This system is built around ESP8266 but not the standalone ESP8266 instead WeMOS is used and programmed using Arduino IDE. So In this video, we will check out how to make an information display system like that using Wemos and MAX7219 based dot matrix display modules. The display system fetches data from the local/online server and displays the received. In this system, u can display any data that you want and that's up t ...
  Omega2, the $5 IoT computer.It is a Linux computer designed specifically for building connected hardware applications. It combines the tiny form factor and power efficiency of the Arduino, with the power and flexibilities of the Raspberry Pi.   The Omega2 is simple, even for people who are just getting started with building hardware. The Omega2 is affordable, starting at just $5. With the Omega2, we want to lower the barrier of entry and allow everyone to take the leap into hardw ...
  This is a simple tutorial on using GPIO of Orange Pi Zero using JAVA. For this, I have used Pi4J library which also works with Raspberry Pi.  This tutorial might help you to interact with GPIO in your IOT projects. In his tutorial, I have tested the application with LUBUNTU OS on Orange Pi Zero. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Links : Install LUBUNTU:   http://bit.ly/2nU84Eh JAVA Applications on O ...
For this, I am going to use LUBUNTU os on the OPI Zero so if you have not already installed LUBUNTU you can do so by following my earlier tutorial on that.If you are a JAVA developer and interested in working in some IOT projects using the Orange Pi zero this is definitely going to help you. One more thing the opi zero has also support for GPIO access using JAVA so that you can also interact with peripheral devices using it. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ...
