    Hi bahareh,

    Sorry for the late reply. Was busy with my work recently.
    If you want to learn to code for the program in Arduino. You need to learn C/C++ programming language.

    Arduino language is merely a set of C/C++ functions that can be called from your code

    I have no experiences on GSM - technical before. Can't help you much here... But if you managed to get your devices to connect to internet, then you'll able to do like what I did in this project.

    Oh, that is my bad. I missing the notFound template. If not mistake I create it for page 404. You can easily create a new template file notFound.html and place it in client/templates/1_layouts/ folder. I believe this will solve your issue.

    And regarding the graph, I used two plugins called RaphaelJS and Ricksaw. You need to study their documentation for how things work. As for my method for this project, you can refer to my coding file both/global_components.js.

    Hope these helps,

    Oh regarding to the styling of the dashboard, I used the theme from Inspinia. It is just for aesthetic. Else you can use the plain styling just like I did for AWS.

    Hi @Christy Tom,

    Thanks for the interest, you can learn the AWS IoT through the video I setup or documentation by AWS. In order to setup the webpage is a bit complex. First you need to know how the web works, the HTTP Protocols and RESTful method, GET PUT POST DELETE, etc....Then learn how to build a website, there is two concerns, which is frontend and backend. Frontend focus on the UI, while backend focus on the server. When you understand a little of that, a great place to start is building a web is with Meteor Framework. It gives you the tools and resource to build both front and back. (the example source codes I build is using Meteor). Then you need to setup a server for it, then you can use the sdk from AWS, here.

    Hi @Aanvesh,

    I personally din't play around with Arduino Uno and esp8266 or Arduino with Wifi Shield before. But I tried one of the MCU that used esp8266, which is NodeMCU. It is quite fun experience for me.
    Btw, to answer your question, I can't really tell which is better at performance. But in term of installation, of course the shield will be the winner.

    Hi, as long you have the right GPIO and your machine able to connect to the internet, any microcontroller is fine. Yea, hopefully my project showcase can help u.

    Hi, thanks for your interest.
    When I did this for my final year project, it is very interesting and somehow also ... very challenging. You need to learn to study a lot regards other IoT projects.
    Erm, I'm not sure what is the issue that cause your Arduino can't give the output. Is it break? Or the codes you write have issue? Anyway, make sure u test each of the output individually with one sensor at each time, then only merge them into final work.

    Cool then.
    To recognize the multiple devices, if for me, I will use different titles for subscribe/publish. Eg: "home/device1/sensor" represent device 1 & "home/device2/sensor" represent device 2.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks @jhzhao!
    Regarding your question, so far I have only tried with one device.
    From what I know how AWS IoT work, the cert attached to the device in order for secure communication. In conclusion, I believe you can share the same cert across multiple devices.
    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Hi there!
    Thanks for reaching out and preview my project. That's easy, since you have your device registry for AWS IoT, remember that the protocol uses MQTT, so the method you need is to setup the "topic", to publish / subscribe it.

    For your reference, please look in my Github repo called "AWS-IoT-Home-Security-Model-HW", there's a file name called "IoTHome-Yun.ino", you can see how I do it in line 356-378.

    Hope this help!

    Dear @Rahul,
    Sure, you're welcome, cant wait to see for your project!

  • IoT Home Security Model about 3 years ago

    Dear @Rahul,
    Thank you for your compliment!
    To answer for your question: Based on my experience, sadly no, most of the sensors does not built-in with a wireless communication chip example Bluetooth, WiFi, ZigBee, etc ... (as for now, but in future might have buit-in).

    But there are some easy and cheaper way to make it work, you can use a popular WiFi SoC called "esp8266" to get your sensors connected to the internet (or to MCU). As the protocol can be in http or mqtt (there are other few protocols, but these two protocols I'm more familiar with). Also, you can check out more projects about "esp8266" in this community by other Hacksters to see how they build their projects.

    I hope I answered your question.

    Hi @Shahariar, I tried to make it as simple as possible with basic function and to demonstrate the MQTT. But as you said, also making sense which to make it more integrated. I will take it into my future improvement, thanks! =D
