Book Description

The Arduino platform is used by more than one million people around the world to prototype electronic systems. It is the perfect platform to use to build home automation systems, as it allows you to build your own motion sensors, control lamps remotely, and control preexisting home automation devices. The Arduino platform also allows you to build wireless home automation systems using well-known technologies such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

This book shows you how to use the Arduino tiny microboard to live like a king. The book covers several projects you can perform using the Arduino platform. The first few projects comprise the basics of home automation, such as building a wireless motion sensor, controlling a lamp remotely, and building a Bluetooth temperature sensor. Then, this book dives into the Internet of Things, helping you get a clear understanding of how to send measured data to the cloud. The book will wrap up by showing you how to communicate and control an existing device and build your own home automation system.
