What is an IoT smart home? It is a system that uses internet-connected devices to enable the remote management and monitoring of home appliances such as lighting or heating. In this workshop, you will learn how to create your own Arduino/NodeMCU home automation system that provides convenience, comfort, security and energy efficiency with just a few buttons away from your smart home app or other networked devices.

NodeMCU is an open-source firmware and development kit that helps you to prototype or build IoT products. NodeMCU came with a Wi-Fi Module (ESP8266) built on it. NodeMCU has 10 digital pins and one analog pin that can connect to sensors and actuators. NodeMCU is also able to host a simple HTML file to a Web Server that can act as an IoT dashboard. In this class, you will learn how to build your own IoT dashboard using HTML and CSS.

In this 2-day webinar you will learn, understand and design your first IoT Smart Home system using Arduino/NodeMCU. You will be able to control lighting (LED), motor (fan) and other equipment through your own dashboard. Access to this webinar came together with the purchase of Forward School IoT Study Kit.
