Introduction: Controlling Arduino Yun With Yun Buddy

This is a simple tutorial to show how to set up Yun Buddy.

Step 1: Get the Arduino Yun on Your Network

If you are using a cable all you have to do is connect the Yun to your router.

If you are using wifi it gets a little more difficult.

By pressing and holding the wifi reset button on the board for 3 seconds the board will be set up as a device that your computer will be able to connect to.

Once connected point your browser to arduino.local.

Here you can configure your device to your network settings

Step 2: Uploading the "Bridge" Example to the Board

Open the Arduino IDE. 

Make sure it is the latest version that supports Yun found here

n the menu go to Tools->Ports->Your Yun

Next go to File->Examples->Bridge->Bridge

Upload the sketch

Step 3: Connecting Yun to Yun Buddy

Open the Yun Buddy App and ensure that your device and Yun are connected to the same network.

Enter the name of your device that you set when configuring the Yun

The default name is "arduino"

You can also use the IP address of the Yun.

Step 4: Controlling the Yun

Once the two have connected you will have the option to change digital and analog values as well as read them.
