All this with particular attention to home automation, sensors and data communication over local and Long Range networks.
In this tutorial I’m going to show you how you can integrate yours automated garage doors or gates with your domestic Internet of Things network using an ESP32 board (which I already used in many projects), in order to control them using your mobile smartphone instead of the proprietary RC remote, thus extending the operating […]
In the last months I’ve often talk about Internet of Things communication protocols like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Narrow Band IoT and, of course, LoRaWAN, explaining and analysing how they works and which are they strengths and disadvantages, as detailed in the following article. Among them, one of the most interesting one is, of course, LoRaWAN, which […]
