What are the easiest IoT Projects for students? keep reading Insider Monkey’s latest article, and you will get the answers. IoT or Inetrnet of Things is an advanced technology that is slowly starting to take over the world. Many industries now prefer IoT as it can be used for different applications. It is predicted that by the end of 2020, more than 50 billion devices will be connected with IoT. It seems that the future is indeed now, as everyone is talking about how fascinating IoT is. But learning it may not be a piece of cake. It requires knowledge of coding and work, work, and some more work. In order to master the complex procedures of IoT, you must learn while you do it and that means lots and lots of projects.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the easiest IoT Projects for students from their list.
The first one is Humidity and Temperature Sensor. You will build an electronic device that can sense the temperature changes and send updates to you regardless where you are. You can receive a text message and an email to notify you of weather changes. For this project, you will need a DHT sensor to detect the temperature/humidity, Arduino microcontroller, and a WiFi module.The next one should be WiFi Door Sensor. You can easily build amazing useful devices such as a WiFi door sensor which ranks 7th on our list of easiest IoT projects for students. And the best part is that it won’t cost you a lot of money, too. This can be very useful if you want to keep an eye on what’s going on at home. For example, you want your freezer doors to stay shut, and with a device like this, you’ll always know if you or a family member forgot to close them. Basically, you’ll need things already mentioned in the previous project description, so make sure you buy an ESP8266 development board, a micro USB cable, a USB wall charger, and tools like a pair of pliers and a hacksaw. To create the device and connect it to WiFI, you need to sign up for an IFTTT account (If This Then That) and then download the app. The last project for today can be Baggage Tracking Device. There is always a possibility for your baggage to get lost and so this device is perfect. Thanks to a simple baggage tracking device, you can know at all times what happens with your baggage. For this project, you will need an Arduino Pro Mini, 1 GSM module with battery and antenna, four jump wires, and one breadboard. Start by disconnecting everything from its power source and then set up the hardware. Watch this video below to see the details on how to create a baggage tracking device.
