Using an IoT Platform vs Do It Yourself (DIY)

When we discuss the Internet of Things technology as a harbinger of the evolution of technology, we are also talking about the technical expertise and extensive scalability options that are required for building even the tiniest building blocks of design and implementation. In fact, all IoT solutions that we develop and implement are designed with the goal of keeping them up and functioning in the long run, which in turn has increased the level of knowledge and expectations that customers have with companies that produce and deliver high-end IoT solutions.

IoT Interfaces Made Simple With Nextion, Raspberry Pi and Ubidots

Have you heard about Nextion Display? Nextion allows you to craft awesome interfaces, even if your coding level is “hello world!”. Its awesomeness doesn’t end up here. It can work with Arduino and all versions of Raspberry Pi. 

This tutorial will show you how to add a Ubidots button to your Nextion Display Interface.

Pushing data to a chipKIT Board with an LED Matrix

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 push notifications; long polling, MQTT or CoAP. For more information abour these methods, check out our article “Choosing the Right Protocol to Send Data to Remote Devices“.
