Arduino IoT Cloud joins the list of IoT services supported by SparkFun's DataLogger IoT boards to make collecting and storing data from your IoT devices easy.
We are excited to announce to you today that the first major firmware update for SparkFun's DataLogger IoT boards is ready for you to use! This update includes several sensor additions to the DataLogger's plug-and-play functionality and also logs data to the Arduino IoT Cloud! See the Release Notes below. This update is available at no extra charge - if you have purchased one of the Data Logger boards below, the updates are a part of your purchase.
SparkFun's DataLogger IoT boards now support logging data to Arduino IoT Cloud! To record sensor data with Arduino IoT, connect your SparkFun DataLogger IoT board to the cloud using its configuration menu. Then, choose the sensors to record data from and set how often the board should log data. The DataLogger board will then automatically collect and send the data to the cloud, where you can view and analyze it using the Arduino IoT Cloud dashboard. With this firmware update, the Data Logger has added Arduino IoT; the Data Logger also supports MQTT Client, MQTT Secure Client, AWS IoT, ThingSpeak MQTT, Azure IoT, HTTP IoT, and Machinechat.
New sensors make it easier than ever to collect the data you need. New sensors include the STHS34PF80 Human Presence sensor, ENS160 sensor, and PAS CO2 sensor. These sensors join the list of nearly 50 sensors already auto-recognized by the Data Logger - making the application and use case possibilities nearly limitless. For example, you can use a SparkFun DataLogger IoT board to log human presence in a room, temperature and humidity levels, and CO2 levels. This data can then be sent to Arduino IoT Cloud, where you can view it in real-time or analyze it over time. You can also use the data to create alerts, such as notifying you when the CO2 level in a room gets too high.
Installation of the new firm ware is easy! Since new sensors and features are being added in these patches, we've made it really easy for you to keep your DataLogger IoT up to date. Click the button below to learn how to update your DataLogger which is accessed via the Settings Menu.
One of the key features of the SparkFun DataLogger IoT is it's simplified access to IoT service providers. This document outlines how an Arduino IoT Device is used by the DataLogger IoT.
The following is covered by this document:
Currently, the Arduino IoT device connection is a single direction - used to post data from the DataLogger IoT to an Arduino IoT Device.
