We have an Alexa project where we’re using Alexa to control physical devices in the room. In a deployment, there are multiple devices in multiple rooms. But these devices aren’t lights or thermostats, so they aren’t yet candidates for the Alexa Smart Home API. A few months ago, it looked like we would have to … Read More
This session will look at building wireless sensors on a variety of hardware: the super low cost ESP8266, the Particle Photon and it’s cloud services, and the new Arduino MKR1000.
This is a continuation of my Internet of Things with Scala posting. In this installment I will go over the assembly of the device that will be used to capture the soil moisture data and send it to an MQTT broker so that it may be picked up by the Scala/Akka based application. The Parts … Read More

More than that, we believe that it signals a growing trend of the importance of the convergence of IoT, mobile and the collection and use of data in real time. IDC … Read More
Inexpensive wireless microcontrollers are everywhere. This session will look at building wireless sensors on a variety of hardware: the super low cost ESP8266, the Particle Photon and it’s cloud services, and the new Arduino MKR1000. In addition to building connected devices, I’ll discuss some options for collecting, storing, and visualizing the sensor data.
There has been a great deal of buzz around the Internet of Things lately. The advent of small inexpensive devices and in particular the Arduino has inspired a generation of people with no background in electrical engineering to do some very creative things. I myself was first inspired by the Arduino and had built several … Read More
