Developing IoT Projects with ESP32

By: Vedat Ozan Oner

Overview of this book

Developing IoT Projects with ESP32 provides end-to-end coverage of secure data communication techniques from sensors to cloud platforms that will help you to develop production-grade IoT solutions by using the ESP32 SoC. You'll learn how to employ ESP32 in your IoT projects by interfacing with different sensors and actuators using different types of serial protocols. This book will show you how some projects require immediate output for end-users, and cover different display technologies as well as examples of driving different types of displays. The book features a dedicated chapter on cybersecurity packed with hands-on examples. As you progress, you'll get to grips with BLE technologies and BLE mesh networking and work on a complete smart home project where all nodes communicate over a BLE mesh. Later chapters will show you how IoT requires cloud connectivity most of the time and remote access to smart devices. You'll also see how cloud platforms and third-party integrations enable endless possibilities for your end-users, such as insights with big data analytics and predictive maintenance to minimize costs. By the end of this book, you'll have developed the skills you need to start using ESP32 in your next wireless IoT project and meet the project's requirements by building effective, efficient, and secure solutions.

Chapter 11: Connectivity Is Never Enough – Third-Party Integrations

Developing an IoT product doesn't mean that we make every piece of the product by ourselves. On the contrary, it is impossible and not the right way of developing a valuable product. After analyzing the required features, we decide which parts we'll make and which parts we'll integrate with others to add a feature. In that manner, we have endless options and support from third-party service providers when it comes to connectivity. With the right selection of third-party services, we can create outstanding IoT products for our users.

During the last decade, voice assistants have assumed an important place in our lives as a new type of machine interface. We have them on our PCs, on our mobile phones, and many other smart devices. Therefore, it would be a wise approach to think about whether we need integration with a voice service when we develop a new IoT product. Integrating with a voice service...
