Introduction to Platform Iot Carriots & ESP8266

In this opportunity we will test the Carriots platform, for a long time wanted to try it and make a tutorial and this is the moment.

Carriots is a platform that provides PaaS services for IoT and M2M projects, allows the connection of devices for data collection and construction of applications, in a few steps you can connect your devices or platforms like Arduino, Raspberry pi or ESP8266 among others.

In this case we will make 2 tutorials:

  1. We’ll tell you step by step how to create a free account.
  2. Communication tests with ESP8266 module temperature measurement with Carriots platform.

1. Create platform account IoT Carriots

2. Tutorial Platform IoT Carriots & ESP8266 sensor DS18B20

We will indicate how to configure carriots and of course the module ESP8266.

Specifically the ESP8266 module performs the reading of the temperature sensor DS18B20 (Onewire) and sends the value through.

This video will detail step by step the required configurations and at the end we will graph the temperature.

Arduino IDE Code

You need to install the libraries in advance:

  • OneWire.h
  • DallasTemperature.h

Materials 

  1. ESP8266 12E NodeMCU 
  2. Sensor DS18B20





Conclusions

The DS18B20 sensor and the ESP8266 NodeMCU module are a good combination for temperature measurement although it works properly with Arduino and Raspberry pi without complications.

We have tested a great variety of platforms of this type and Carriots is a very good tool that provides complete services for the analysis of data, we can exalt the following characteristics:

Gerarchy, allows you to organize your application in a way that allows expansion without affecting previous configurations

Listeners, which are listening rules to perform control.

Alarm, you can create notifications of variables and device states.

Its api allows without any complication to connect all kinds of devices and programming languages available, does not require extra libraries in the case of Esp8266 and Arduino IDE for connection.
