Ubidots is very excited to join the global data network of PubNub to provide unrivaled security, minimal latency, industry-standardized compliance with critical reliability. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a complex ecosystem to navigate and Ubidots and PubNub look to make it easier for all IoT innovators to create end-to-end IoT solutions. All IoT solutions..
The Particle community keeps finding cool applications to the Particle Device family. This time it was John R McAlpine V Mac, who built a Smart Garage Door featuring integrations with Amazon Alexa and IFTTT, and data logging with Ubidots: Want to build awesome IoT projects? Sign up with Ubidots for free and make it happen!
IoT projects can be very fun and useful. If you thought connecting a device to the Internet, Sending emails or SMS and visualize a bunch of data, could be boring, think twice. In this piece, Ubidots highlights Laura Julianna Vargas Escobar, who built a heart rate monitor to track and can even send alerts notifying loved..
During the contest Smart devices for Smart Cities, launched by Mediatek Labs, this team of aerospace engineering students setup a Linkit one to log atmospherical data to Ubidots as it went up. The balloon would collect atmospheric data such as temperature and hydrogen concentration, with the help of a High Altitude Balloon, Linkit One and Ubidots. To see..
If you’ve read any tech blog over the past few years, you’re probably well aware of the hype behind the ‘Internet of Things.’ As the technology behind it becomes more affordable, from sensors to networking chips, it makes sense that there’s a corresponding need for IoT apps. The basic idea behind the IoT is that..
This article is based on another article that Ubidots contributed to the Sept/Oct 2015 Edition of the Microsolutions Magazine from Microchip. The Internet of Things (IoT) is not only about millions of things talking to us; it is also—more importantly—about us being able to talk back to them. Let’s take retail analysis applications as an example. Suppose..
This project shows how to read a Ubidots variable using an HTTP GET request and the chipKIT Uno board. It serves as an example on how data can be read from an embedded system using the short polling technique. There are other methods and protocols to talk to a remote device which can help you achieve real time..
We recently got a support ticket about the WiDo board from DF Robot. As it was the first request for this module, we immediately ordered a unit to get our hands on it. After some minutes of playing with the board, we were positively impressed. Its Arduino form factor makes programming a breeze, and the..
During the Hackster Hardware Weekend I had the chance to test the Intel Edison board and was pretty amazed by its form factor and speed. Intel has made sure to include Arduino compatibility in its Edison and Galileo boards, and while I think it’s a nice alternative to have, I feel that some project just don’t require this,..
Chip McClelland likes to collect data from Raleigh’s trails and parks. His primary focus has been to achieve low-cost modules with long battery life, experimenting with both WiFi and Cellular. So what does he do? a custom PCB to put all the components together, a good-quality tight box and of course, a firmware pointing to..
Water is the single most important element for our health and environment. What can we do to preserve it? Monitoring its quality is a good start. Be it in a swimming pool, an agricultural crop, a municipal water facility or a remote well in Africa, preserving clean water can help both reduce unnecessary waste and..
