ESP8266 WiFi Module + Nabto

Important notice: This post is outdated. Nabto only works on ESP8266 through the legacy Nabto 4/Micro (uNabto) platform which is no longer supported for new designs. Instead, it is highly recommended to look at the modern Nabto 5/Edge platform and its support for ESP32. The ESP8266 is a low-cost WiFi module that can be programmed […]

Raspberry Pi 3 IoT – Perfect for Nabto

A few days ago (29/2-2016) the new Raspberry Pi 3 was announced. Of course we were all excited here at the Nabto headquarters and quickly bought a few.

Since this project was rather substantial, the coffee machine saga will be split […]

The SunPi Control Center

More specifically, in the summertime, when the sun shines heavily the battery would be filled within an hour after sunrise. The rest of the day, the charge controller would simply waste/curtail excess energy […]
