Here are a few step-by-step examples on how to make stuff

Creating a simple device and controlling it via the IoT.Cafe App

In this example, we'll create a simple device, which has a LED light and will see how to connect and control it with a mobile phone or computer via Bluetooth or USB.

  • Create a simple LED light device
  • Control your device with your mobile phone or computer

Flashing main board. Making a purely-web device.

Here, we'll lay some detals about the firmware setup process and show how we can upload a project and manage a device purely via the internet, without ever needing the IoT.Cafe App

  • Setup new device with the OpenIoT firmware
  • Manage the new device through the internet

Making a first step to creating a weather station

In this example, we'll use the BME280 sensor to measure temperature, humidity and barometric pressure.
You can also use the BMP280 sensor, only it can't measure humidity.

Connecting your device to the internet

In this example, we'll explore several ways for your device to become internet-accessible

  • Using board with built-in Wi-Fi
  • Using external Wi-Fi module
  • Using GPRS and the mobile network

Connecting and accessing a device via the internet

In this example, we'll have a device connect to the internet and access it via the IoT.Cafe website.

  • Add Weblink to your device
  • Access the device from the internet
  • Change the device's settings from the internet
  • Update the device's project from the internet

...Or how to integrate with web APIs

In this example, we'll create a device, which measures ambient air features like temperature and pressure and we'll use Weblink and Web Relay to send the measurement to Windy.

Windy is a community-driven meteo website, where people can provide meteo data from their own meteo stations, creating a world-wide meteo map.

We'll integrate our device with the Windy API and see its redings on the map in windy.com.

  • Create a device with an air sensor
  • Add Web Relay to the device's project, so the device's readings get passed through to Windy
  • See our device's readings on windy.com

Internet and SMS from the mobile network

In this example, we'll see how to use the mobile network for internet and for sending SMS messages, the way a phone does

  • Create a device with GSM module
  • Use internet via the mobile network
  • Send an SMS via the mobile network

Let's go!

Sending instant notifications

We'll see how your device can send Email, SMS and mobile notifications

  • Create a device with Weblink peripheral
  • Send Email, SMS and moble notification
