Stream to a Real-Time Web Dashboard from any Arduino

Arduinos have been a Maker favorite for years. They’re powerful, small, and always open source. With the advent of tiny, cheap WiFi chips like the ESP8266, many Arduinos and third-party boards are now also network connected! The best part about a network connection? You can stream to Initial State! Because streaming can vary a little from board to … Continue reading Stream to a Real-Time Web Dashboard from any Arduino

Introducing Geofenced Triggers

You can now setup a geofenced trigger for a data stream containing latitude/longitude coordinates. Whenever an asset enters or leaves the programmed geofence, set by a latitude/longitude coordinate center plus a specified radius, a trigger action will fire. This post goes through a step-by-step example of setting up a geofence and testing trigger alerts by sending location data … Continue reading Introducing Geofenced Triggers

Guest Post: Arduino Troubleshooting

This is a guest post from one of our fantastic users, Plant-OS ( / @plant_OS). While developing our prototype, we found challenges implementing a web based dashboard that extends well with the Arduino Yun platform. Most data streaming platform providers have general support for Arduino, however most weren’t clear enough and were generally buggy. We … Continue reading Guest Post: Arduino Troubleshooting
