The Internet of Things (IoT) is the fastest growing technology market. Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. Mastering Internet of Things starts by presenting IoT fundamentals and the smart city. You will learn the important technologies and protocols that are used for the Internet of Things, their features, corresponding security implications, and practical examples on how to use them. This book focuses on creating applications and services for the Internet of Things. Further, you will learn to create applications and services for the Internet of Things. You will be discover various interesting projects and understand how to publish sensor data, control devices, and react to asynchronous events using the XMPP protocol. The book also introduces chat, to interact with your devices. You will learn how to automate your tasks by using Internet of Things Service Platforms as the base for an application. You will understand the subject of privacy, requirements they should be familiar with, and how to avoid violating any of the important new regulations being introduced.

Preparing our project

Following the same steps as outlined in the previous chapter, we will create a new Universal Windows Platform application project. This time, we call it Sensor. We can use the same hardware setup as in the previous chapter, even though we will only use the light sensor and motion detector (PIR sensor) in this project. We will also add the latest version of a new NuGet package, the Waher.Persistence.FilesLW package. This package will help us with data persistence. It takes our objects and stores them in a local object database. We can later load the objects back into the memory and search for them. This is all done by analyzing the metadata available in the class definitions, so there's no need to do any database programming. Go ahead and install the package in your new project.


The Waher.Persistence.Files package contains similar functionality, but it performs data encryption and dynamic code compilation of object serializes as well. These features require .NET standard...
