Create a self-hosted arduino IOT device to turn house lights on and off. Sid asked I do some sort of IOT project.
I worked on it for a few days and fixed the web interface to improve the UX of the product.
- Server - I had to configure the MKR1000 to host a server and deliver HTML/CSS to a specified IP address.
- The sensors/LEDs had to be configured to respond to changes on the server.
The LEDs listen for changes in the URL to respond to requests.
My IOT device is a very simple version of existing market products.
I could improve the HTML/CSS and make the webpage dynamic. I could also host just a server on the arudiono that responds to API calls instead of hosting the full stack on the micro-controller.
