Want to take your first steps into the magical world of the Internet of Things, or want to find out how easy it is to use the IoT JumpWay as your secure IoT communication platform? This tutorial is for you an will hold your hand through setting up your first Raspberry Pi project powered by the TechBubble IoT JumpWay.
What Will We Build ?
This tutorial is a simple tutorial that will help you take your first steps to using the TechBubble IoT JumpWay to connect your IoT devices and applications to the Internet of Things.
The tutorial will use TechBubble Technologies IoT JumpWay Python MQTT Library for communication, a Raspberry Pi with an added LED, and an application that can control the LED via the IoT JumpWay.
- 3.4 or above
- Raspberry Pi.
- 1 x LED.
- 1 x 220 ohm Resistor
- 2 x Jumper Wires
- 1 x Breadboard
Before You Begin
There are a few tutorials that you should follow before beginning, especially if it is the first time you have followed any of our Raspberry Pi tutorials or if it is the first time you have used the TechBubble IoT JumpWay Developer Program. If this is the first time you have used the TechBubble IoT JumpWay in your IoT projects, you will require a developer account and some basics to be set up before you can start creating your IoT devices. Visit the following IoT JumpWay Developer Program Docs (5-10 minute read/setup) and check out the guides that take you through registration and setting up your Location Space, Zones, Devices and Applications (About 5 minutes read).
Preparing Your Raspberry Pi
Take some time to ensure your Raspberry Pi firmware and packages are up to date, and that your device is secure by following the Raspberry Pi 3 Preparation Doc tutorial.
Cloning The Repo
You will need to clone this repository to a location on your Raspberry Pi 3. Navigate to the directory you would like to download it to and issue the following commands.
$ git clone https://github.com/TechBubbleTechnologies/IoT-JumpWay-RPI-Examples.git
$ cd IoT-JumpWay-RPI-Examples/Basic-LED/Python $ (sudo) pip install --upgrade pip $ (sudo) pip install -r requirements.txt
