About this project

Working

IOT OnAir is a device that could be used to notify any specific content on Google calendar with IdIoTware Shield. The event from the google calendar notifies the maker channel on the IFTTT server. Once the maker channel is triggered, it will then send a ‘Get request’ to the Blynk server.

IoT onAir Sign with the Idiotware Shield

For example: http://blynk-cloud.com/yourAPIkey/update/V0?value=250?pin=V0&value=0&pin=V0&value=0

Note: Here value is the whole number that is used to set the intensity of red color on idIoTware shield from 0 to 255.

So what is IFTTT?

IFTTT is a free web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called "recipes", which are triggered based on changes to other web services such as Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and many more. IFTTT is an abbreviation of "If This Then That".

User can use the maker channel to connect there hardware with other services and trigger them according to the recipes.

For example: The event from the Google Calendar notifies the maker channel on the IFTTT server. Once the maker channel is triggered, it will then send a ‘Get request’ to the Blynk server.

Configuring IFTTT and Blynk APP

In your Arduino program, you need to copy the Token Key generated in the Blynk app and also need to write your SSID and password for Wi-Fi. You are now ready to upload the code. You will see your ON Air light up when the google calendar event is called.

Configuring Arduino IDE and idIoTware shield

Download the code and upload to Arduino.

Wasn’t that easy?

Without connecting any wires for ESP8266 you got up and running with the Internet of Things. And you have your own ON AIR station. With the idIoTware shield the sky's the limit.
