As a hardware guy, coding a real-time map is too complicated for me. Fortunately, Ubidots’ dashboard makes it so simple that anyone can create a LIVE map like this one and without and serious web coding required.
Learn to build Industrial IoT applications
Ubidots and Digital Matter partner to power smarter, faster telematics and GPS solutions. If you work in transportation, or have an affinity for taking the back roads, you’ve likely experienced GPS failure: this app is telling me my truck is…where? Digital Matter (DM) is here to make tracking tools better — providing smarter, ultra-reliable white-label..
The ESP8266 is a microcontroller developed by Espressif Systems. Known as a WiFi Module, this microcontroller has the ability to perform WiFi related activities like Internet of things applications and home automation. Ranging in price and features, there are many types of ESP8266 modules available, but all of them are incredibly useful for IoT world…
The Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is a client-server protocol powering most of World Wide Web. Every time you surf the web, your browser is sending HTTP request messages for HTML pages, images, scripts, and styles sheets. Web servers handle these requests by returning response messages containing the requested resource, completing the HTTP request-response cycle. Just like your browser or..
The Internet of Things has brought a lot of formerly complex device applications into the homes of many craft brewers and wine makers. Applications with level sensors have been used for decades in large refineries, water treatment plants, and chemical plants. With sensor prices falling, now both industrial and DIY can monitor the volume of..
Build and deploy a soil moisture and temperature sensor using a Particle Device with Ubidots Platform. Nothing will replace walking out and handling soil for yourself, but today’s technology has made it possible to remotely monitor soil and track parameters that are unmeasurable to the human senses. Soil probes like the SHT10 have advanced technologically..
A people counter is a device used to measure the number of bodies traversing an entrance, hallway, street corner, etc. If you need to know how many people exist in a space – this is your simple solution. Typically used in retail stores, large events,, and smart office buildings, this counting technology has provide insights..
In this guide you will learn how to control a couple of 110V appliances over Wi-Fi for $9, using Itead’s SONOFF Dual. Compared with consumer-grade WiFi smart plugs in the market, the SONOFF is a great alternative for making smart home and even industrial IoT projects at a larger scale. Moreover, it is based on..
5G is scheduled to come in 2020. This post discusses NB-IoT and its technical aspects that make it so important for the Internet of Things.NB-IoT, also known as LTE Cat NB1, is about to connect billions of devices in a smarter way. It’s cost efficient, supports lower-power consumption to use low-cost devices, and provides a wide..
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.
There are lots of wearables in the market nowadays. We found it interesting to see one for babies being built within the maker community. The materials needed to make the monitor are affordable, and it’s a great tool for parents who might want to check more parameters about their babies than the ones provided by a webcam.
AirPi is an plug-and-sense, low cost weather station. It works as a shield for the Raspberry Pi, gathering data about temperature, humidity, air pressure, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, light levels, noise levels and even more. In this article we’ll connect the AirPi Kit to the Ubidots cloud, creating a connected WiFi weather station. Once the AirPi is plugged to..
