IoT - INTERNET of THINGS


I'm not sure I can say I'm a "Maker". However, when exploring options to solve in a cheap and effective way some needs to control and automate processes, I had the opportunity to approach the world of microcontroller boards for hobbyists.
It's a very fascinating world!
Thanks to technology developments of cheap microcontrollers and the easy access to crowdsourcing and open hardware communities, everybody can easily develop cheap but complex devices that can communicate over the network, interact among them, measure and store data, control systems.
In line with the spirit of collaborative innovation that allowed me to realize my projects, I'm happy to share in these pages information and source codes related to systems I created.
I really hope that they'll be useful to anybody interested to reuse them or part of them for his own goals.
I'm of course available to be contacted for any additional clarification.
Enjoy!
ETHERNET based CHRONOTHERMOSTAT

This is the first system I worked on.
Thanks to an Arduino board, it allows to remotely control the heating system and an optional hot water boiler at home.
You can set different temperatures for the home environment along the day and change them according to a weekly calendar. It's also possible to manage exceptions during specific periods.
The thermostat is connected to the network and gives the possibility to visualize and modify all settings through the Internet with a PC or a smartphone.
The system is using an Arduino board with Ethernet shield, a DS18B20 digital temperature sensor and two electromechanical relays.
The whole set of components costs less than 50€.

ETHERNET based THERMOMETER and HYGROMETER with ARDUINO

It's a device to measure temperature and humidity that can be connected through Ethernet and allows data reading on a simple web page.
The system is using an Arduino board with Ethernet shield together with an SHT75 temperature and humidity digital sensor.
The whole set of components costs less than 50€.


A more detailed description of the system and his working principles will be available soon.
Meanwhile do not hesitate to contact me if interested.
WIFI THERMOMETER and HYGROMETER with ESP8266

It's a device to measure temperature and humidity that can be connected to a WIFI network and allows data reading on a simple web page.
It is based on a very small board (ESP-01) using a powerful microcontroller (ESP8266) that, among other features, is implementing a complete WIFI system.
The whole set of components costs less than 20€.


A more detailed description of the system and his working principles will be available soon.
Meanwhile do not hesitate to contact me if interested.
