I created this project to learn more about IoT. For hardware, I used the ESP8266, and for software, I created a mobile app to interface with it. The app was created with Meteor JS, and I used MQTT for communication between the app and the ESP8266 (device).

Ultimately, I ended up with an app that can connect to multiple devices to control relays (turn on and off lights and LEDs) and read sensors (temperature and humidity).

To learn more about the ESP8266 and MQTT check out my prior blog posts here and here.

I recently gave a lightning talk (the rules are 2 minutes or less) at the Meteor Meetup in San Francisco. Take a look at the YouTube video below for more details on this project.
