Particle Cloud

Now that we have our devices whitelisted and we have a nifty wifi guest account, we can begin uploading our code to our Photon boards. We will spend a significant amount of the class working through a few simple examples to learn the basic workflow and syntax. We will also explore the Particle-CLI and the Particle cloud. Lastly, we will link IFTTT and Particle to send us text messages when sensor values reach a certain threshold.

Lab / Homework

  • Create a recipe on IFTTT that is triggered when a variable on your Photon board hits a certain threshold. We will be showing some of these during the next class.
  • Install Particle CLI on your PC or MAC
