WIFI plant monitoring system based on Arduino MEGA and ESP8266

Today we are going to show you our first experiment on the Internet of Things. For this purpose, we decided to use an Arduino MEGA instead of an Arduino UNO. That's because Arduino MEGA has more than one serial port and this fact allows us to use the ESP8266 and the serial monitor at the same time. As written in the title, we'll see how to monitor some of the most important plant growth factors*. These para ...

iProtoXi Aistin: Multi-Modular Sensor Platform

Internet of My Own Things Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings. –Salvador Dali The Internet of Things has a different meaning for different people. For some, it means monitoring room temperatures from a mobile phone, whereas for other, it is controlling garden lighting from a laptop computer. For sports-minded people, it might mean logging their heart rate in real-time to a cloud service. I ...
