The Arduino IoT Cloudecnmag #IoT_CloudFebruary 12, 2019
The Arduino IoT Cloud will quickly and automatically generate a sketch when setting up a new thing, thus enabling a developer to achieve a working device within five minutes of unboxing a board.
The Arduino IoT Cloud allows users to manage, configure and connect not only Arduino hardware but also the vast majority of Linux-based devices – truly democratizing IoT development.”
To highlight how the Arduino IoT Cloud would work in tandem with the MKR family in a real-world solution, Banzi cites an agricultural example, where low power and alternative connectivity options are essential: “Suppose we want to build an IoT greenhouse, the goal is to control this greenhouse remotely, i.e. to be able to turn on and off the lights, start the irrigation system, and read and adjust the temperature inside the greenhouse, all without the need for human intervention.
The complete system can be automated and controlled using an Arduino MKR WIFI 1010 board along with the Arduino IoT Cloud.
Upload the software (Arduino Sketch) and it will be ready in minutes to automatically control the properties of the actuators (e.g. activate the ventilation fans when there is too much humidity in the greenhouse) via a simple web interface.
It’s even possible to take this automation one step further, as we’ve seen a solution developed based on Arduino to establish and indicate when the fruit is perfectly ripe for harvest on a commercial farm.”
More about the Arduino IoT Cloud
The Arduino IoT Cloud was designed with security in mind, from product development through its entire lifecycle, enabling users to securely provision, connect and authenticate devices to the IoT Cloud while they are deployed in the wild, and ensuring all data transmitted between the device and Arduino’s cloud is confidential and tamper-proof.
There is also a way to use webhooks to let the Arduino Things interact with other services like IFTT, Google Spreadsheet, and Zapier.
At the end of this article, you have learned how to build an IoT system using sensors, Arduino, and IoT cloud platforms. As you have noticed during this tutorial, we can integrate existing platforms and services building an IoT system.
This result is very important because we will use these values later. Now, you have to enable the access to Google Sheet. For this purpose, in your browser copy and paste the f…
