Actually, the benefits of IoT are very much. Basically, IOT aims to facilitate human activities. So, the benefits of IoT are related to human activities. I will explain a little about the working concept of the API. Where in each API must be included entry access? The entry is in the form of a Key Token. This entry can only be known by a programmer who understands about iot application development, because if someone else knows it, then our IoT device and the can be easily reprogrammed by someone who is not supposed to. Well, the IOT device will be programmed in such a way as to be able to access the API regularly. For example, there are projects regarding temperature monitors through the Telegram API.
Well, the temperature monitor was given access to or Token Key in order to exchange information with the Admin or us regularly.
So the temperature monitor will update information about the temperature it detects. Then the information is sent to the database from the API.
Then if we as admin want to see the latest information update, we will give a special command to display the information we want.
The Importance of Internet Connectivity
So the point is connectivity is very influential in this matter. If the connection is rather bad, then the information provided from the IoT device to us is also unsatisfactory.
So that’s how a little picture of the concept of work. Actually, to learn about IoT itself, you don’t have to have a microcontroller first.
Right now we can be helped by the name circuits.io. Circuits.io is a website that provides simulations in programming Arduino. It also contains a number of supporting modules from Arduino.
So we don’t have to bother buying first. We can immediately learn without having to have Arduino. In programming Arduino itself, we don’t need to be very proficient in programming.
People who are still unfamiliar with programming languages can still program Arduino. The point that we need when learning a programming language is logic. Wow, you don’t need to be able to master programming languages. You can already make IoT devices.
