Simple IOT

IOT refers to small devices equipped with direct internet connectivity. Learn IOT top to bottom with this remote temperature sensor project.
IOT stands for Internet of Things and refers to small devices equipped with direct internet connectivity, without needing an external computer. They are usually composed of a main microcontroller and an additional connectivity (eg. ESP8266 for Wifi, ENC28J60 for Ethernet) or they are complete SOC including both the processing unit and the connectivity modems in one single package. Regardless of their form or shape, these devices open new applications for remote sensing and controlling, and bring system automation to a new level of performance.Examples of such devices were presented on this blog even before IOT was coined as a buzzword. See the Ethernet controlled power relay based on enc28j60 or the development of first prototypes of what is now uRADMonitor.”
