In this guide, I'll take you through the steps necessary to stream your iOS iPhone or iPad sensor data to Adafruit IO using the Swift programming language. iOS mobile devices contains a handful of sensors such as Gyroscopic sensors, a Barometer, Magnetometer and much more. In this guide we'll be sending our Accelerometer sensor data to our Adafruit IO account feed. This guide doesn't require an extensive knowledge of Swift.
This is Adafruit and Digikey’s ALL THE INTERNET OF THINGS - a six-part series, covering everything you need to know about the Internet of Things. For our second guide, we’ll go over the most popular protocols used in the IoT industry, as well as the upsides and downsides of each type of protocol to help you decide what you’ll use to connect your devices to the internet and exchange data.
Connect your Arduino-compatible to the Internet with this WiFi shield that features the FCC-certified ATWINC1500 module from Atmel. This 802.11bgn-capable WiFi module is the best new thing for networking your devices, with SSL support and rock solid performance - running our adafruit.io MQTT demo for a full weekend straight with no hiccups (it would have run longer but we had to go to work, so we unplugged it).
Everything you need to prototype an IoT device and connect it to Google IoT Core. This kit comprises a Raspberry Pi3, GPIO breakout cable, breadboard, cables and wealth of sensors and actuators. Google Cloud IoT Core is a fully managed service to easily and securely connect, manage, and ingest data from globally dispersed devices.
Build and code a radio communication system that notifies you of incoming messages, for example via automated puppet, and then displays the message on the Micro:Bit LED screen. No prior experience coding or using hardware is necessary. But! As this project involves communication (a two-way street), it’s a project for two or more people. Grab a friend, a micro:bit each, and build it together! Yayy collaboration! :D
The Adafruit Feather nRF52 Pro ships pre-programmed with the Mynewt serial bootloader that allows you to flash firmware to the device directly from the command-line using the on-board USB Serial converter and the 'newtmgr' tool, so you can get started right away with no additional hardware required. For more advanced debugging, however, you can use a Segger J-Link and the on-board SWD debug connector, which gives you access to a more powerful set of development tools and options.
Aww yeah, it's the Feather you have been waiting for! The HUZZAH32 is our ESP32-based Feather, made with the official WROOM32 module. We packed everything you love about Feathers: built in USB-to-Serial converter, automatic bootloader reset, Lithium Ion/Polymer charger, and all the GPIO brought out so you can use it with any of our Feather Wings.
Using 900Mhz (or 425Mhz) RF for long-range communications between the transmitter and the receivers, this general purpose controller will make your wireless triggering wishes come true! Plus, you get to use a rotary encoder knob to scroll menu sets, and punch in your commands on the lighted 4x4 Trellis keypad.
A Particle Photon microcontroller and an Adafruit Neopixel ring combine to make a pin that's fit for NASA fans. It displays an orbiting white blip when idle and then turns blue, white and red when the ISS flies by. The code makes use of IFTTT (If This Then That), a free site that makes connecting IoT devices as easy as a few clicks. This project was inspired by my first NASA Space Apps Challenge with friend Brooks Rampersad--an ISS Orbit Skirt.
If walls could talk. If fridges could email. If toasters could tweet. If garbage cans could blog. If sinks could post stories. If stoves could code. The Internet of Things can be in all the things. Adafruit, Digikey, and Nimbus the Friendly Cloud Entity are here to help you learn how to connect everything you need and nothing you don't.
A physical disability can make it impossible to operate a touchscreen device such as an iPhone or iPad. Commercially available switch control devices can cost several hundred dollars but with the power of Adafruit Bluefruit BLE devices you can build an interface for a fraction of that cost. We show you how in this tutorial.
If you've already got an Amazon Alexa or Echo dot in your home or office, you can easily add your very own devices. In this quick project we'll show how to use an Adafruit ESP8266 Feather HUZZAH to control NeoPixels or a relay. You can easily adapt the code to add any number of devices to a single Feather for all sorts of interactive home automation projects with ease!
