Overview of this book

ESP32 is a versatile microcontroller and a great starting point for anyone venturing into the IoT realm, but its configuration and interfacing of sensors can be challenging for new users. Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE) simplifies programming, uploading code, and utilization of ESP32 capabilities, enabling users to incorporate it into their IoT projects with ease. This book will help you learn the essentials of sensing, networking, data processing, and applications with ESP32, laying a strong foundation for further IoT development. Starting with ESP32 and Arduino Ide 2.0 basics, you'll first explore practical implementation examples of interfacing sensors with ESP32. These examples will also teach you how to interface the ESP32 camera and display modules with ESP32. As you progress, you’ll get to grips with IoT network and data protocols, as well as the many options they unlock within IoT applications. The book will also help you leverage your newly acquired knowledge with exciting projects ranging from smart connected devices to data loggers and automation. By the end of this book, you'll confidently navigate ESP32 projects with newfound knowledge and skills, know what IoT protocol to select for your applications, and successfully build and deploy your own IoT projects.

Project 3 – Logging, Monitoring, and Controlling using ESP32

In this chapter, we will start another exciting journey to explore the capabilities of the ESP32 microcontroller in the realm of home automation and monitoring. The mission of this chapter is to demonstrate how ESP32 can be harnessed to enhance the convenience, security, and efficiency of your daily life.

Our focus will be on logging, monitoring, and controlling various aspects of your home using the versatile ESP32 platform. We’ll deploy sensors in key areas such as the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living room to collect valuable data. This data will be efficiently stored in an InfluxDB database, providing a robust foundation for analysis and monitoring.

The heart of our monitoring system lies in Grafana, a powerful tool that allows us to visualize and gain insights from the data collected. We’ll delve into the technical aspects of setting up Grafana, creating informative dashboards, and setting...
