As device Z-Wave become

1 year, 11 months ago
In this article we will tell how Z-Wave devices are created. From the point of view of circuit engineering and programming development of Z-Wave of the device not strongly differs from development of the device based on Arduino, AVR or PIC. However there are in Z-Wave nuances. About them the speech under a cat will also go.

Smart house. Everything begins with wires

1 year, 11 months ago
Shortly after I automated lighting in the village, we made a decision that it is necessary to make major repair in the Moscow apartment. It was the chance to implement the dream of "The smart house". That has to be in the smart house, I had no special understanding therefore I decided to be guided by the universal principle:" If you do not know what to begin the smart house with, begin with lighting".

Management system greenhouse microclimate

1 year, 11 months ago

Beginning of a way


In one solar afternoon, having come to University, I learned that in this semester at me course on circuit engineering. The teacher suggested to make only the explanatory note "how to implement the project" or to learn a dark side of engineering and to create the real device. And as I was already on the 4th course, and having remembered that the only time when I put into practice the skills of the engineer was at the first year (fastened a book shelf to a wall), I decided "to work as handles". After short reflections, I selected the subject "Management System Greenhouse Microclimate". Most likely the choice was influenced by my love to automation of processes, or the fact that I also was engaged in cultivation of cucumbers in greenhouses. But we will long not pull — we begin.

The open project of the client of MQTT on Delphi. Continuation

1 year, 11 months ago

The beginning was here: The MQTT protocol and the open project of the client of MQTT on Delphi

The project of the client of MQTT on Delphi was added with the instrument board for supervision over an information stream from the Internet of things in real time and the generator of periodic publications for testing of MQTT brokers. The JSON format for information transfer as it is the standard for Internet services was accepted.
And also we will look what can offer us IBM Bluemix for the organization of remote supervision and management of things on the Internet.

Use of iRidium for systems management of automation based on the Z-Wave protocol

1 year, 12 months ago
The current software version for systems of automation iRidium allows to create convenient and multifunction control bars with support of a wide range of controllers and other equipment. For direct interaction with devices the solution uses system of external drivers and TCP/IP as the basic protocol. In this article we will get acquainted with interfaces for work with Z-Wave controllers from Fibaro and Z-Way.



Use of a linking of iRidium with these devices can be rather useful in some situations. In particular, in need of consolidation of control of controllers of different standards, in large projects for creation of specialized points of control, and also at desire to be selected with design of a control bar.

Fir-tree burn! We take the smartphone, the mobile Internet and … we include "fir-tree" at the dacha

1 year, 12 months ago

It will be a question of how to manage electric devices via the Internet. The task is rather simple if there are a good, wire Internet and, especially, static IP address. But when an Internet access is possible only via the GSM modem, for example, at the dacha, the choice of solutions is not so big … but is! Now to worldwide network it is connected users more, than inhabitants of Earth. Full Internet users are different devices for a long time and many of them communicate among themselves, using the popular MQTT protocol, more than once here described. At the Master Keith there are several devices which also use the MQTT protocol and a free cloud server of iot.eclipse.org. It will be a question of their setup and application.

The MQTT protocol and the open project of the client of MQTT on Delphi

1 year, 12 months ago

The MQTT protocol is applied to message exchange on the Internet of things. It is interesting first of all that is supported by the largest providers of cloud services, such as IBM, Microsoft, Amazon.
It is possible to receive free of charge the account in these services, to configure there service of acceptance of MQTT of messages and to watch through these services life of the devices, for example, in the smart house. Also through these services of the device can communicate among themselves.

Demonstration of connection of the client to service MQTT of a cloud IBM Bluemix is applied.
