  7. The focus of this project is to demonstrates how easy it is for Ameba Wi-Fi Dev. board to communicate with our smart phone via MQTT protocol. Phone to microcontroller communication used to be very difficult as they use totally different hardware interface and phone get its data mainly through the network. Now with a Wi-Fi enabled microcontroller like Ameba RTL8195AM, communication with our phone becomes a bliss. Of course, in this video, only a mini window is used for demonstration purpose, but controlling a real window should not be a problem if you simply replace the servo motor with

  9. LoRa is a low-power wide-area network protocol developed by Semtech. It has a typical range of 10KM at low power consumption which is ideal in some IoT applicaitons. Using LoRa on Realtek's Ameba Dev. board is very easy, here is a tutorial about it, Materials Ameba x 1 Dragino LoRa Shield x 2 Example Dragino Lora Shield is a long range transceiver and based on Open source library. It allows the user to send data and reach extremely long ranges at low data-rates.It provides ultra-long range spread spectrum communication and high
  10. A BLE beacon broadcasts its identity to nearby Bluetooth devices, to enable the other devices to determine their location relative to the beacon, and to perform actions based on information broadcast by the beacon. Example applications of beacons include indoor positioning system, location-based advertising and more. From the definition of its purpose as a broadcast device, a BLE beacon thus cannot be connected to, and can only send information in its Bluetooth advertisement packets. There are several BLE beacon protocols. The Ameba BLEBeacon library supports the iBeacon and Alt
  11. One of the challenges of using IoT enabled MCU is the power consumption. However, on Ameba, you can keep the WiFi on while in sleep mode thus enabling power saving and connectivity. Here is a demo of how to achieve WiFi in sleep mode. Preparation Ameba x 1 DHT11/DHT22/DHT21 x 1 Example In deepsleep mode, the WiFi feature of Ameba is disabled. If you want to save power and keep the WiFi connection at the same time, please use the sleep API. Open "File" -> "Examples" -> "AmebaPowerSave" -> "SleepWithDHTUdpServ" Remember to set th
  12. BLE connections use a server client model. The server contains the data of interest, while the client connects to the server to read the data. Commonly, a Bluetooth peripheral device acts as a server, while a Bluetooth central device acts as a client. Servers can contain many services, with each service containing a some set of data. Clients can send requests to read or write some data and can also subscribe to notifications so that the server can send data updates to a client. In this example, a basic battery service is set up on the Ameba Bluetooth stack. A mobile phone is used to conne

  16. Accessing internet service is an easy job for a smart device like an android phone, tablet or a PC, but not so easy on microcontrollers since it usually requires better connectivity and processing power. However, we may offload the heavy part of the job to IFTTT to help us accomplish a great variety of internet service with ease. This tutorial will show you how to make use of IFTTT to do just that. Introduction to IFTTT IFTTT, known as If This Then That, is a website and mobile app and free web-based service to create the applets, or the chains of simple conditional statements. The applet
  17. Now that most people stay at home to avoid close contact with potential COVID-19 virus carrier, air quality becomes an important factor to people’s well-being, especially in tropical countries where using air-con is a must during the day, as prolonged use of air-con may do more bad than good to people’s respiration system thus weakening our immunity and make people more susceptible to virus infection. Here I am going to show you how to make a simple yet powerful air quality monitoring system using Realtek Ameba RTL8195AM development board and PM2.5 module, together with a TFT LCD display
  18. MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is a protocol proposed by IBM and Eurotech. IBM® Watson™ IoT Platform is, by the official definition, “A foundational cloud offering that can connect and control IoT sensors, appliances, homes, and industries. Built on IBM Cloud, Watson IoT Platform provides an extensive set of built-in and add-on tools. Use these tools to process IoT data with real-time and historical analytics, extract key performance indicators (KPIs) from your data, add “smarts” in the cloud for non-smart products, and securely connect your own apps and exist

The focus of this project is to demonstrates how easy it is for Ameba Wi-Fi Dev. board to communicate with our smart phone via MQTT protocol. Phone to microcontroller communication used to be very difficult as they use totally different hardware interface and phone get its data mainly through the network. Now with a Wi-Fi enabled microcontroller like Ameba RTL8195AM, communication with our phone becomes a bliss. Of course, in this project, only a mini hand-crafted win
  20. One of the most useful IoT applications is home security. Imagine a thief cutting your security camera wire while trying to break into your house. This won’t happen if your security system goes wireless and smart. This project demonstrates the capability of Realtek Ameba dev. board to conduct board-to-board communication via MQTT (FREE MQTT broker hosted at cloud.amebaiot.com). With this home security system, you will definitely be alarmed when your window/door is opened by the self-invited as the buzzer will make loud irritating noise while red LED flashes continuously
  21. The project demonstrates how an IoT device (Ameba RTL8195) is applied in real-life scenarios. If you have watched previous demo videos, you should have no problem understanding how an LCD display, a DHT Temperature Humidity sensor and our Ameba RTL8195. It can be put together to form a fully functional smart weather station. Simply follow the instructions in our examples as follows to DIY your own weather station, 1.

No matter how many time the power is off, or you have moved, as soon as it's powere
  23. MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" (IOT) connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. With an Arduino-compatible wireless soc, e.g. Realtek Ameba1 (RTL8195/RTL8710) dev. Board, we can create a MQTT client that sends our sensor data to the cloud or any other MQTT clients. The source code is available on github at, https://github.com/ambiot/amb1_arduino/blob/master/Arduino_package/hardware/libraries/MQTTClient/examples/mqtt_basic/mqtt_basic.ino The things that need to take n
  24. Temperature and humidity are 2 of the most important factors affecting people’s comfort level in an enclosed space. The DHT humidity and temperature sensor can read the ambient temperature and humidity every 2-3 seconds, and then pass the data to Ameba who will forward them to the server using MQTT protocol. Whoever “subscribing” to the right topic gets the data almost instantaneously. Users can then adjust the aircon mode or temperature according to the readings received. An android phone was used as an MQTT client and the Ameba RTL8195 Dev. Board acted as another MQTT client communicati
  25. This is a simple IoT project based on the “mqtt basic” example that comes with the Arduino package when you install the RTL8195 on Arduino IDE. In this project, simple passive components are used to aid in demonstrating the power of bidirectional communication of MQTT protocol which is widely used in modern IoT applications for its advantages in speedy response and lightweight. In the video, an android tablet was used as a MQTT client and our Ameba RTL8195. Board acted as another MQTT client communicating with the android tablet. Both client have to connect to the same MQTT server before
