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.

In this chapter, we embarked on a comprehensive exploration of IoT applications, focusing on the vital task of environmental monitoring. We began by delving into the intricacies of reading moisture levels, as well as tracking temperature and humidity data. These critical measurements provide us with invaluable insights into our surroundings, enabling us to make informed decisions and take appropriate actions.

Building upon this foundation, we explored the power of email communication by employing SMTP. This allowed us to send messages and alerts directly to email recipients, providing a reliable means of information dissemination and communication.

Furthermore, we dived into the exciting realm of communication and automation. Leveraging the CallMeBot API, we honed our skills in sending specific messages through popular messaging platforms such as WhatsApp and Telegram.

In addition to real-time messaging, we dived into the world of social media and harnessed the Twitter...
