“We are going to build a simple IoT dog feeder that costs less than $30 and can be controlled remotely via an IoT software!
Has your dog ever woke you up early in the morning for food? Do you blame yourself for not being able to feed your hungry pet because you are too busy and can’t get home on time? Purchasing a smart dog feeder that allows you to control it through the internet can be quite expensive. So why not design and build your own smart dog feeder with a few inexpensive electronic components? In this article, we are going to build a simple IoT dog (or other friendly creature) feeder that costs less than $30 and can be controlled remotely via an IoT software. By the end of this project, you will learn:
- What is a WeMos D1 Mini development board and how to use it
- How to use the Blynk IoT platform to manage your hardware device
- How to program the WeMos D1 Mini development board using Arduino IDE
