Programming Onion Omega 2 using Python | GPIO Access

This tutorial is all about developing python applications on Onion Omega 2. As the onion omega doesn’t come with python pre-installed, we need to install it ourself. We can write a variety of scripts using python for Omega 2 and most importantly for IOT application we can access the GPIO of omega 2 by using python itself. So let’s check out how to do that. And if you are unaware of what is onion Omega 2 you can check the official website for more details and even buy one to work if you don’t have one and for those links are down below. And to check more videos around Onion omega 2 like this there are links for that too.

Omega2, the $5 IoT computer.It is a Linux computer designed specifically for building connected hardware applications. It combines the tiny form factor and power efficiency of the Arduino, with the power and flexibilities of the Raspberry Pi.

Control any load over Internet/ based on Temp. & Humidity | SONOFF TH10

February 14th, 2017 No comments

SONOFF TH10SONOFF TH10 /TH16 is a smart switch version of Sonoff which can monitor and set temperature and humidity through the iOS/Android APP eWeLink. Just as the name indicates, the Sonoff TH device supports two current supply specifications: 10A or 16A. It features presetting the range for temperature or humidity. When the temperature or humidity of the environment falls within the range, it will automatically turn on or off the connected devices. It supports three kinds of temperature and humidity sensors AM2301, DS18B20, DHT11

BMP180 Interfacing with Arduino | In Depth

February 10th, 2017 No comments

BMP180This video is all about interfacing BMP180 module with Arduino. BMP180 will help us to measure environmental temperature and pressure and by using that we can calculate the altitude which can be used in various applications like weather monitoring, navigation etc. The BMP180 sensor module comes with the I2C interface and with a default address 0x77 which is not configurable limiting stacking of multiple modules to that same I2C bus. In this tutorial, we will interface the module with Arduino by using I2C interface that is analog input pin A4 and A5. And for this, we are not going to use any library although if you are interested you can use any library available online which are actually pretty easy to use. Interfacing the module without any library will help us learn how it works as well as we can interface to other devices also where libraries are not available.

IIC

This tutorial is all about IIC (I2C) communication on Raspberry Pi by using JAVA and for that, I have used Pi4J library. To demonstrate this in the tutorial I have used MCP23017 Port expander IC with Raspberry Pi. MCp23017 is a 16 Bit input/output Port Expander ICcomes with I2C Interface. To interact with the IC suing IIC (I2C) port  here we have used Pi4J and JAVA.

MCP23017 Features:
16-bit input/output port expander with interrupt output
Cascadable for up to 8 devices on one bus
25mA sink/source capability per I/O
Supports 100kHz, 400kHz, and 1.7MHz I2C™Compatible compatible modes
