Got the ESP-01 Adapter, thinking it will help in programming these awesome devices. However, when I tried using them to program the ESP-01, it just didn’t work.
I received my ATTiny85 Dev Board in the mail today! I have some projects that needed the small footprint hence I’m excited! So without further ado, lets get started with a quick summary of how to get up and running with the ATTiny device.
I have 2 teenage daughters and they bus to school daily during the week. They start off real early in the morning each day, at slightly different times and every minute saved during those precious time, getting ready and having a quick breakfast is vital.
Wouldn’t it be nice if theres a button, when pressed, gives you the next bus arrival time in minutes and also factors in the walk to the bus stop?
I have always wanted to know how much energy the refrigerator consumes, being one of the biggest consumer of household electricity, and virtually every home has at least 1 unit, it would be an interesting project for me.
I started looking at how I could achieve this, and I would eventually like to match it against my monthly utility bill, perhaps even modifying my usage pattern to reduce and possibly save on energy usage.
With the popularity and unavailability of Amazon Dash (ioT) Button here in Singapore. I decided to make my own ioT Button, a WIFI enabled, single and double clickable button that will do my biddings.
After you have made your Arduino hardware creation, you will need to upload a sketch or software to it. Depending on the microcontroller you are using, you may need drivers and additional hardware to achieve this. In this post, I will detail some options that I use.
As most Arduinos are programmed using the serial port. Necessary drivers are needed to connect the Arduino to MacBook. But since signed drivers weren’t available on the Mac and the workaround requires security modifications that I am not comfortable with, I have mainly stuck with Windows 10 as my main development platform.
This project monitors temperature and sends its results via WIFI to a Google Spreadsheet at timed interval of 2 minutes per reading. It also sends the current voltage level of the battery to the spreadsheet. To save power and extend battery life, the device is put to DeepSleep after the temperature and voltage values are successfully sent to Google Spreadsheet.
