Explore the "Internet of Things." Discover how to program "things" such as wearable tech, appliance sensors, and programmable hardware, and how to connect to and control these devices with iOS apps and services.
- Hi, I'm Michael Lehman. Welcome to Programming the Internet of Things with iOS. All over the world there are things being invented. Tiny, battery-powered, internet-connected computers, embedded in everything imaginable, ranging from smartwatches like this Pebble and the Apple Watch, to car data connectors, and nearly invisible wearable devices that can help you remember to stand up straight, like the Lumo Lift I'm wearing inside my shirt. There are new devices being released every day that keep you safe, remind you when to water your plants, and even offer you a great deal when you get to the favorite section of your local department store.
Many of these devices work with or require an app to capture data over time, and provide a connection to the cloud. In this course, we'll first take a look at what's inside a typical thing, and then dive deep into how to build companion apps for your iOS device using Bluetooth and WiFi. We'll build a micro weather station, explore in iBeacon, and build an app that changes the color of your living room lights based on what time of day you get home. So take a deep breath, and let's get started programming the internet of things with iOS.
