The Internet of Things (IoT) can add a lot of convenience to our lives, with a myriad of connected devices available from hundreds of manufacturers. But it’s even more versatile when you can build your own IoT devices. There are a few products that can assist you in creating your own IoT devices, like Blynk and IBM Node-Red. Today we will look at another one of these products, the Arduino IoT Cloud.
Arduino IoT Cloud Course
The Arduino IoT Cloud has actually been around for a couple of years now, but recently it was given a “facelift”. In addition, Arduino has updated its cloud plans, there are now four tiers including a free one. One of the big improvements is that ESP32 and ESP8266 support is now included in the free plan! Today we will see how to get started with the Arduino IoT Cloud. I’ll show you how to select a plan and set up your workstation with the Arduino Create agent. Then we will build a few cloud devices using an Arduino Nano 33 IoT board, and Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect board and an ESP32 WROVER module.
