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 1 – Smart Plant Monitoring System Using ESP32, Messaging Services, and the Twitter API

In this chapter, we will use all the knowledge we gained in the previous chapters and complete an innovative project where we’ll integrate various sensors with a plant to create a smart and interconnected ecosystem.

Our project revolves around the concept of enhancing plant care and communication. We will dive into the details of interfacing sensors with an ESP32 microcontroller, enabling the plant to gather and process data about its environment. The data will be sent to the owner of the plant, which will set the foundation for informed decision-making.

What sets this project apart is its extensive use of messaging services and APIs to establish communication channels between the plant and the digital world. We will explore how the plant can send real-time updates via Gmail, WhatsApp, and Telegram, ensuring that you are always in the know of your plant’s wellbeing...
