How To Post On Twitter From Arduino and ESP8266 IoT Project

Twitter is a free social platform that can be very useful for your IoT project. You can use it instead of paying for a messaging platform. In this project, I will teach you how to use Twitter to send temperature alerts from your IoT project. The project utilizes ESP8266 WiFi module to connect Arduino to the internet. The WiFi module connects to your home WiFi for the internet. You can also use the ESP8266 alone but in this simple project, we shall use it together with Arduino Uno. For integration with Twitter, we use Thingspeak’s ThingTweet App. We connect to […]

Using Thingspeak to build a simple weather station with ESP8266 wifi module and Arduino

It is in every IoT (Internet of Things) enthusiast’s desire to build at least one IoT project in their lifetime. However, the cost of building a simple IoT project as well as the knowledge needed might be scary especially to newbies. In this esp8266-Arduino-Thingspeak project, we are going to learn how to build a simple and cheap weather station using the DHT11 temperature and humidity sensor, esp8266 wifi module, Arduino Uno microcontroller, and the Thingspeak open IoT platform, in seven simple steps. 7 Steps to building your simple esp8266-Arduino-Thingspeak weather station Hardware requirements Software requirements Electrical schematic design How to […]


VIDEO: Resolving Issues Arising from Launching ESP8266 into AT Mode Using Arduino’s 3.3V [VIDEO]

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I think a motion picture is worth two thousand. Watching a video demo clears the confusion that may result from learning by reading. I happen to be one of those guys who prefer learning by watching especially after studying the theories around something. After writing the article: How to Launch Your ESP8266 WiFi Module into AT-MODE Using Arduino Uno, I found it fit to follow it up with a video demo. The demo specifically demonstrates: How to connect the ESP8266 WiFi Module directly to the Arduino’s 3.3V pin How to launch the […]
