How to send data to Adafruit cloud

by Kim1810 on Tue May 26, 2020 10:38 am

Hi,

I have a hardware with real time data which needs to be connected web .for this I am planning to use adafruit cloud service

Can anyone please direct me on how to send this real time data on adafruit cloud and interact with it or any relevant example on how to push values from your projcet to cloud and interact with it .

I have seen post of how to create feed and dashboards on adafruit. However I didnot understand how to push data from project to cloud and then monitor it.

Appreciate a quick reply

Thanks
Kim

There are many Adafruit IO guides in the learning system: https://learn.adafruit.com/search?q=adafruit%2520io.
A good starting point is https://learn.adafruit.com/welcome-to-adafruit-io.

Hi Kim,

The Adafruit IO Basics: Temperature and Humidity guide may be useful for your project: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-io- ... d-humidity


It demonstrates using the Adafruit IO Arduino library to push two types of sensor data from your project to Adafruit IO

Hi Brubell,

Thanks for the reply.

I have gone through the project link "https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-io-basics-temperature-and-humidity " you shared, seems useful.

I still have a query : do I need to purchase Adafruit.io Internet of Things Feather ESP8266 - WiFi ( https://www.adafruit.com/product/2680) to connect my hardware?
As my hardware do have ethernet connection and is it possible to push data on adafruit cloud by software only?(I am a beginner in the world of IOT and clarifying my queries , this can be a silly question for you ,sorry)

Any WLAN or WIFI enabled (in other words Internet enabled) device can publish (MQTT) data to Adafruit IO, as long as you write code for it to do so. If you buy a device for which a MQTT library already exists, writing the code is easy.
