Tutorial Platform IoT Ubidots & ESP8266 + Sensor DHT11

This time we have tested the platform Ubidots, is an IoT platform dedicated to the collection and display of data, creating colorful graphics.

For our test we will use the Module ESP8266 and a DHT11 sensor to measure the temperature / relative humidity and later visualize it.

Test Ubidots & ESP8266 + DHT11

Using the Arduino IDE, the programming and configuration of the module ESP8266 12E NodeMCU is done. We have taken a test example and we have made modifications to work with the DHT11.

As mentioned above, our account has 5000 credits available for our applications.

Conclusions and Considerations

Ubidots is another very good solution created for the Internet of things, allowing to create colorful dashboards and its API for sending data is very easy via MQTT/HTTP/TCP/UDP. technically allows any device to send data without any complications.

Since we have 5000 credits we must take into account, to develop our applications and prototypes.
