Sending Email from ESP8266 - Practical Implementation

Sending E-mail from ESP8266 – IoT Project

The scope of the IoT applications is growing from controlling appliances to monitoring devices (like sensors) and sending e-mails. So here I am writing an article on Sending Email from ESP8266 and it will be a step forward in the IoT Implementation. Components RequiredESP8266 Breadboard USB CableSoftware SMTP Server Setup In order to send e-mail from ESP8266 Module, we need to use the SMTP protocol. Hence, an SMTP Server is required to send the e-mails and the ESP8266 will act as an SMTP Client. So, I [...]

Interfacing MPU-6050 with Arduino Uno

Interfacing MPU-6050 / GY-521 board with Arduino Uno

About MPU-6050 MPU-6050 is a chip manufactured by Invensense which combines 3 axis accelerometer and 3 axis gyroscope with an on-board digital motion processor. It also includes a embedded temperature sensor and an on chip oscillator. It is very accurate and consist of analogue to digital conversion hardware for each channel thereby capturing x,y,z channels at the same time. The arduino can be interfaced with I2C bus. 3-axis Gyroscope The MPU-6050 consist of a 3 axis gyroscope which can detect rotational velocity [...]

ESP8266 as MQTT Client - Arduino IoT Tutorial

ESP8266 as MQTT Client – Arduino IoT

IoT or Internet of Things is an emerging technology which enables us to create a network of devices, sensors, actuators to connect and exchange data. MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is one of the commonly used protocol in this field. It consists of MQTT Broker and MQTT Clients. Where MQTT Broker is the server through which all MQTT Clients are communicating each other. CloudMQTT provides MQTT Broker as a service, which we are using in this tutorial. In this project [...]

Interfacing Moisture Sensor with Arduino

Interfacing Soil Moisture Sensor with Arduino

Introduction In this article, we are going to interface a Soil Moisture Sensor with Arduino Uno. We will measure the moisture content of soil in pot or farming field and by using this we can pour water into field based on preset values. This sensor measures the volumetric content of water inside the soil (based on resistance/conductivity) and gives the moisture level as output. The sensor is equipped with both analog and digital output, so it can be used in both [...]
