Playing with ESP8266 modules and IoT
ESP8266 as IoT device
Reviewing the Exosite Murano Platform for a IoT solution, I started to build a new board based on ESP8266 powered ESP-12E module.
Arduino ESP support installation instructions:
Start Arduino and open Preferences window.
Enter the following link into “Additional Board Manager URLs” field.:
Start the Boards Manager, update and select the ESP support package.
Install and use a USB to Serial adapter to program the board.

- Silicon Labs to Acquire Sigma Designs December 13, 2017Deal focused on Z-Wave technology; Silicon Labs intends to divest or shutter other product lines.
- Karamba Says It Can Protect CAN December 13, 2017Thus far, Trillium has been the sole voice promoting 30-year-old CAN bus protection. Now Karamba Security is in the game, claiming it better because SafeCAN authenticates a CAN bus-based network with "zero network overhead."
- IoT Markets to Watch in 2018 December 13, 2017Predictive maintenance and asset tracking are two big IoT markets to watch in 2018 because they will provide real efficiencies and improved safety.
