IoTgo Arudino Library Preview

ITEADLIB_Arduino_IoTgo is an Arduino library specially written for IoTgo platform. It supports ESP8266, W5100/W5500, and SIM900/908 modules accessing and communicating to IoTgo platform through WIFI, GPRS, or Ethernet.

In previous two blogs, we've demonstrated how to remote monitor temperature and humidity and how to remote control a switch. In the part of codes using, we use the demos directly provided by IoTgo library, and the rest we need to do is to modify the API Key and Device ID. In this blog, we will take a further step to learn how to use this Arduino library.

Besides, this library supports three network connection modes including Ethernet, GPRS and WIFI(esp8266). Users can modify the connection mode by defining different macros in the configuration file IoTgo_config.h

#define NET_USE_ESP8266
//#define NET_USE_W5X00 
//#define NET_USE_GSM

Second Batch Airspy Shipping Delay

Dear all Airspy fans,

We are sorry to inform you that the second batch Airspy shipping will be delayed. 

The aluminum enclosure should have been arrived on Friday this week. However, the cooperated factory tells us that the aluminum enclosure only can be delivery on Friday next week because the end of the year is the peak season of their goods producing and shipping.

For the part of boards producing, the SMD can be finished in this week and we will test them from the Monday next week.

We are sorry for the shipping delay. When they are ready, we will ship them to you ASAP. 

Update on 12/19/2014

For now, we still haven't recieved the alumium enclosure. The process of alumium enclosure producing divides into three steps: cutting, oxidation, and silkcreen. Now they are in silkcreen process, and it is expected that the silkscreen can be finished on Wednesday next week. 

We can't tell a exact shipping day before we recieve the alumium enclosure. But we hope that they will be shipped before new year.

Keep track of this blog, we will update the latest airspy shipping information here.

Wboard Pro Applies in IoTgo Platform (2): Remote Control Home Application

For now, IoTgo platform only supports three devices: temperature and humidity sensor, light and switch. And it only provides some basic operations for these devices. In the future, we will devote to develop this platform to support more devices and provide more operations.

In this tutorial, we use Wboard Pro again. When the Wboard Pro connects a 2 Channels 5V Relay Module and a local button brick to communicate with IoTgo platform, we can make a remote switch so that we can control a home application from office or anywhere.

Hardware Connection

The relay module connects to Wboard Pro's Dx pin. and the local buttom brick connects to Wboard Pro's interrupt pin. Then you need to connect the power lines of certain home application to the switch pins of relay. By doing so, we can control this home application via Dx pin. We will use a ventilator to do the demonstration in this tutorial.
Please refer to the following pictures.

Wboard Pro Applies in IoTgo Platform (1): a Remote Temperature and Humidity Monitor

In this tutorial, we use Wboard Pro and SHT10 temperature and humidity sensor as example to communicate with IoTgo platform so that we can realize a remote temperature and humidity sensor that can be visited via internet.

For the Hardware part, we choose the Arduino development board Wboard Pro with an on-board wifi ESP8266 chip, and then make the SHT10 sensor brick connect to it. You can connect SHT10 sensor to Wboard Pro's IIC. Please refer to the following picture.

Airspy Pre-order Now!

Update: Airspy was assembled already yesterday, all the products are being tested now!

It has been two months since we announced that Airspy was going to be sold in our website. For the past two months, we have been testing and debugging Airspy. And we know that SDR fans want to have a try this little dongle desperately. Now, ITEAD Studio is accepting the pre-order of this product.

Please go to this link to preorder Airspy.

However, please notice that preorders for Airspy will be shipped around the middle of November.

You must wonder why they are shipped after half month. Because the preparation of bare boards, chips, materials and aluminum enclosure is just DONE

Part of Bare Boards and Aluminum Enclosures
