Are you looking to get your data accumulating project hooked into the “Internet-of-Things”? Then here is an IOT Bundle kit from Tenet Technetronics which brings easy-to-use, affordable Wi-Fi functionality to your Arduino projects. It makes posting data to the web as easy as constructing a URL and POSTING it to a server.
Inside this kit you will find
- Wi-Fi module (ESP8266),
- Arduino UNO R3 with USB type B cable,
- USB to TTL serial Cable,
- Temperature sensor (LM35),
- Five LED’S with 1k Resistors and a set of connectors.
Great, but what does all that mean? Well, let’s say you have a sensor (temperature sensor) and you want to log all that data to somewhere on the Internet. ESP8266 Wi-Fi module allows you to post that sensor data and view that data from any computer or smart phone connected to the Internet.
Conversely, you can control a device (LED”S) connected to Arduino via ESP8266 Wi-Fi module from anywhere (as long as you have Internet access).
All of this falls under the umbrella of Internet of Things (IOT), in which Internet-connected embedded systems can communicate with Internet services, such as web sites or other connected devices.
Wi-Fi module ESP8266
ESP8266 is one of the low cost Wi-Fi modules as a highly integrated chip designed for the needs of a new connected world. It offers a complete and self-contained Wi-Fi networking solution, which can carry software applications, or through another application processor uninstall all Wi-Fi networking capabilities.
ESP8266 has powerful on-board processing and storage capabilities that allow it to be integrated with the sensors and other application specific devices through its GPIOs with minimal development up-front and minimal loading during runtime. Its high degree of on-chip integration allows for minimal external circuitry, and the entire solution, including front-end module, is designed to occupy minimal PCB area.
Arduino UNO R3 with USB type B cable
The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz ceramic resonator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB type B cable to get started.
USB to Serial cable:
The USB to TTL Serial Cable provides an easiest way to connect your microcontroller, It often be used as serial port communication so that can help you debugging your Wi-Fi module and also to see the response coming from it.
LED’s, Resistors, and Breadboard:
A breadboard (or protoboard) is a construction base for prototyping of electronics i.e. this can help you in interface Arduino with LEDS and Resistor to control from IOT.
Temperature sensor (LM35):
The LM35 is an integrated circuit sensor that can be used to measure temperature with an electrical output proportional to the temperature (in o C).
This set of 25 handy Male to Female Jumper Wires is perfect for connecting sensors, wireless modules, or anything else with male pin terminations directly into a standard female header. Use them in conjunction with male to male or female to female jumper wires to make a handy extension.
