This storage unit flood detector application is part of a series of how-to Internet of Things (IoT) code sample exercises using the Intel® IoT Developer Kit and a compatible Intel-based platform, cloud platforms, APIs, and other technologies.
From this exercise, developers will learn how to:
- Interface with and sensors using MRAA and UPM from the Intel® IoT Developer Kit, a complete hardware and software solution to help developers explore the IoT and implement innovative projects.
- Set up a web application server to let users enter the access code to disable the alarm system and store this alarm data using Azure Redis Cache* from Microsoft Azure*, Redis Store* from IBM* Bluemix*, or ElastiCache* using Redis* from Amazon* Web Services* (AWS*), different cloud services for connecting IoT solutions including data analysis, machine learning, and a variety of productivity tools to simplify the process of connecting your sensors to the cloud and getting your IoT project up and running quickly.
- Connect to a server using IoT Hub from Microsoft Azure*, IoT from IBM Bluemix*, IoT from Amazon Web Services (AWS)*, AT&T M2X*, Predix* from GE, or SAP Cloud Platform* IoT, different cloud-based IoT platforms for machine to machine communication.
What it is
Using a compatible Intel-based platform, this project lets you create a storage unit flood detector that:
- continuously checks the moisture sensor.
- sounds an audible warning in case of a possible flooding.
- stores a record of each time water is detected, using cloud-based data storage.
How it works
This storage unit flood detector uses the moisture sensor to constantly ensure that your stored belongings are not destroyed by water damage.
If the moisture level exceeds a defined threshold, it makes a sound to indicate a warning.
Optionally, data can be stored using your own Microsoft Azure*, IBM Bluemix*, AT&T M2X*, AWS*, Predix*, or SAP* account.
First time setup
For all the samples in this repository, see the General Setup Instructions for required boards and libraries.
In addition to using a compatible platform listed in Hardware Compatibility, here is additional hardware you will need to run this example
This sample can be used with either Grove* or DFRobot* components.
- Grove* Base Shield V2
- Grove* Moisture Sensor
- Grove* Speaker
- Moisture Sensor
- I/O Expansion Shield
Connecting the Grove* sensors
You need to have a Grove* Shield connected to an Arduino* compatible breakout board to plug all the Grove* devices into the Grove* Shield. Make sure you have the tiny VCC switch on the Grove* Shield set to 5V.
|Sensor ||Pin |
|Grove* Moisture Sensor ||A0 |
|Grove* Speaker ||D5 |
Connecting the DFRobot* sensors
You need to have a I/O Expansion Shield connected to an Arduino* compatible breakout board to plug all the DFRobot* devices into the I/O Expansion Shield.
