Arduino to ThingSpeak Channel

1. Description

A previous IoT article (MQTT Node with Arduino Uno and W5100 Ethernet Shield) presented a basic system monitoring sensor data in local area network environments, using a locally installed MQTT broker (server). This tutorial presents the possibility of using an open-source cloud-based server (ThingSpeak) that could offer the advantage of remote accessing the collected data, graphical representations and analytics.

Difficulty level: intermediate.

MQTT Node with Arduino Uno and W5100 Ethernet Shield

1. Description

This tutorial shows how to build a basic IoT device using an Arduino Uno (R3) board equipped with an Ethernet Shield (W5100). The device is configured both as MQTT publisher (for publishing local sensor data) as well as subscriber  (for getting remote commands) to topics located on a local area networked MQTT server.

Difficulty level: intermediate.
