In this lesson, we will show you how to control a RGB LED from a remote browser .
We will use Osoyoo Mega-IoT Shield to connect the RGB and MEGA2560 MCU board. OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560 can work as a web server. Remote browser can access this web server and control the RGB connected to the RGB interface of this shield.
OSOYOO OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560 x 1
OSOYOO MEGA-IoT extension board x 1
USB Cable x 1
RGB PnP module x 1
4-pin PnP cable x 1
First, please plug OSOYOO MEGA-IoT Extension Board into OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560:
Then connect the RGB module to the RGB port of the OSOYOO MEGA-IoT Extension Board with a 4-pin PnP cable as below:(Jumper Cap should connect ESP8266 RX with A8, TX with A9)
Step 1 Install latest IDE (If you have IDE version after 1.1.16, please skip this step).
Download IDE from https://www.arduino.cc/en/software, then install the software.
step 2 WifiEsp Library Installation (if you have installed WifiESP library, please skip this step)
OSOYOO MEGA-IoT extension TX/RX pin to OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560 A9/A8 pin by default. So in Arduino sketch code, we need use Software Serial Port to communicate with ESP8266 (set A9 as TX and A8 as RX in SoftwareSerial object).
To use this wifi shield in IDE, we need download WiFiEsp-master library from following link:
Open IDE ->Sketch ->Include Library ->Add ,Zip library to load above zip files into IDE.
Step 3 After installing above library, please download the main code from following link.unzip the download zip file lesson5.zip, you will see a folder called smarthome-lesson5.
Step 4 After above operations are completed, connect OSOYOO MEGA2560 Board to PC with USB cable.
Step 5 Open the IDE and choose corresponding board type and port type for you project.
Step 6 IDE: Click file -> click Open -> choose code “smarthome-lesson5”, load up the sketch onto your OSOYOO Advanced Board for Arduino MEGA2560.
Note: In the sketch, find following lines:
char ssid = "******"; // your network SSID (name) char pass = "******"; // your network password
please replace the ****** with your correct wifi SSID and password, otherwise your project can not connect to Internet.
After loading the sketch to IDE , open the serial monitor in the upper-right corner of IDE, you will see following result:
From the serial monitor , you can see the IP address of your MEGA2560 board in the read circle (in above picture, 192.168.50.8).
Then use your browser to visit the website http://mega2560-ip-address (in above case, http://192.168.50.8), you will see following result:
click the three links as showen in above picture, you will switch the color of RGB module which is connected to your MEGA2560 through the IoT Shield.
