Build amazing Internet of Things with ESP8266 Wi-Fi Chip.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an exciting field that proposes to have all the devices that surround us connected to the Internet and interacting not only with us but also with each other. It’s estimated that there will be 50 billion IoT devices in the world by the year 2020.

On the other hand, the ESP8266 chip is small, cheap (less than $5), and a powerful Wi-Fi chip that is also really easy to program. Therefore, it is the perfect tool to build inexpensive and nice IoT projects. In this book, you are going to learn everything you need to know about how to build IoT projects using the ESP8266 Wi-Fi chip.

Key Features

  • Get to know the powerful and low-cost ESP8266 and build interesting projects in the field of the Internet of Things.
  • Configure your ESP8266 for the cloud and explore the networkable modules that will be utilized in IoT projects.
  • This step-by-step guide teaches you the basics of IoT with ESP8266 and makes your life easier.

The Internet of Things with ESP8266 is a network of objects, such as physical things, embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and connectivity, enabling data exchange. The ESP8266 is a low-cost WiFi microcontroller chip that can empower IoT and facilitate the exchange of information among various connected objects. The ESP8266 consists of networkable microcontroller modules, and with this low-cost chip, IoT is booming. This book will help deepen your knowledge of the ESP8266 WiFi chip platform and get you building exciting projects.

Kick-starting with an introduction to the ESP8266 chip, we will demonstrate how to build a simple LED using the ESP8266. You will then learn how to read, send, and monitor data from the cloud. Next, you’ll see how to control your devices remotely from anywhere in the world. Furthermore, you’ll get to know how to use the ESP8266 to interact with web services such as Twitter and Facebook. To make several ESP8266s interact and exchange data without the need for human intervention, you will be introduced to the concept of machine-to-machine communication.

The latter part of the book focuses more on projects, including a door lock controlled from the cloud, building a physical Bitcoin ticker, and doing wireless gardening. You’ll learn how to build a cloud-based ESP8266 home automation system and a cloud-controlled ESP8266 robot. Finally, you’ll discover how to build your cloud platform to control ESP8266 devices.

With this book, you will be able to create and program Internet of Things projects using the ESP8266 WiFi chip.

    As a beginner with this module, it was good to have a book that took nothing for granted. Things are explained very clearly, and there does not seem to be any danger of not getting the examples to work. The only complaint was some of the drawings; I like the schematic, and there were not that many of them. That is a minor point, however. I liked this book. Very useful.
