IoT ESP8266 Series: 3- ThingSpeak-Android Control NodeMCU's Ports

Introduction: IoT ESP8266 Series: 3- ThingSpeak-Android Control NodeMCU's Ports

About: I'm a passionate Solutions Engineer. I have my B.Sc. degree in Mechatronics Engineering, and doing my M.Sc. in Embedded Systems Engineering at one of top-rated universities in Germany

This is part 3 of IoT ESP8266 tutorial series. Please refer to Part 1 and Part 2

After finishing this part, you will be able to control two LEDs through ThingSpeak and an Android application.

Step 1: Circuit

Connect and LED to D1 through 330 ohm resistor

Step 2: Read API Key

in addition to things you remembered from the last parts, this time you need to remember your Read API Key, because you are willing to read data from a channel field which are ( 0 and 1 )'s

Step 3: Android Mobile Application

Download this free application ESP8266 IoT Control DevicesOR this "Relay Control Internet". This application is very simple, all you need is to set your Channel ID and Field. Unfortunately, your are only allowed to control two device ( actually you will send data to maximum two channel fields).

Note that you need to set your Write API Key in the Android Application and Read API Key in the Arduino code.

Step 4: Code

Download my source code.

Inside the program, you will find this code:

readValue = ThingSpeak.readIntField (myChannelNumber, 1, myReadAPIKey);

Number 1 stands for the field number. this ThingSpeaks's function returns the last value ( in our case 0 or 1 ) which has already written from the mobile appliction
