This article shows how to configure the user interface in many different ways when building an IoT device – how to monitor the information of the sensor connected to the completed IoT device. How to operate the output device connected to the equipment? Web server, app, and cloud are typical examples to use. For web server, we can configure the function as desired. But, we need preliminary knowledge such as the concept of web server and http. While for app and cloud, the combination of functions provided allows users to configure the functions required. In other words, web server increases the degree of freedom of construction but it is difficult to implement. On the other hand, app and cloud decrease the degree of freedom of construction but is easy to implement. Let’s look at some examples below!

1. Web Server

– Arduino Web Server Tutorial

This tutorial introduces various Arduino web server applications in 18 parts.  In all parts, Arduino and Arduino Ethernet Shield are used for the main platform. It covers the basic concept of HTTP protocol and HTML to CSS, JavaScript, and AJAX.

2. App (Blynk)

– IoT pH regulator with Arduino and Blynk

In this project, I will show you how to build a basic pH regulator using cheap electronic components that are readily available online. The regulator can be controlled and monitored online through the Blynk app dashboard.

This project is easily modifiable to use other types of components, like peristaltic pumps or liquid valves to regulate pH up or down, depending on what kind of project/system you are using it with. It can be modified to supply both pH heightening and pH lowering agents, which can be used in gardening systems like hydroponics/aquaponics where pH can both rise and fall depending on the many environmental factors.
