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.

Sending emails using SMTP

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is a fundamental communication protocol that’s used for sending electronic mail (email) messages over the internet. It operates as a set of rules and conventions that enable email clients or servers to transmit messages to their intended recipients. SMTP governs the process of routing, relaying, and delivering emails, making it a core component of email communication worldwide. Its simplicity and efficiency make it a widely adopted protocol for ensuring the reliable exchange of electronic messages across diverse email platforms and services.

In this section, we’ll dive into the integration of SMTP within our ESP32-powered smart plant monitoring system. Email communication proves to be an invaluable tool in keeping plant enthusiasts informed about the well-being of their green companions. By harnessing the power of SMTP, our system can send email notifications and updates directly to the user’s inbox...
