M2M VS IoT - Know the Difference https://goo.gl/JkL3D9


Finding the distinction between Machine to Machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT) development can be baffling at times. While the latter is trending for quite sometime now, the former has been around a while. Let’s see how they are different.

I saw a neat new feature mentioned in today's "What's new with Alexa" email:

"Alexa, remember mom's favorite flowers are tulips."
Now you can ask Alexa to remember any information so that you never forget it. Recall it later by asking, "Alexa, what is mom's favorite flower?"

This is a regular problem, using wow internet service, when they installed it was 100 mbps and that was the only day, was able to see that speed, and today checked a couple of times and informed them at their FB page too, but nothing happened yet.

1. what I can do to fix or at least know, for sure that it's ISP issue, FYI had already bounced the mode.
2. Just today itself updated the router too (NetGear R6300)
3. Tried to check using speed test and google too: download speed is good, but upload is google and speedtest is giving the error (attached) tried uploading - not working, can see here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uzl69vzw02lp01i/speed.JPG?dl=0

Please advise/guide ... what should one do in this kind of situation.
Thanks in advance & best regards.

Our TP-Link AC1750 provides services for a Guest Network.  It also allows me to prohibit guests from access to my local network however I see IP addresses with same octet being assigned to guest devices as in 192.168.0.xxx.  I would have thought the guest IPs would be on a different segment address such as 192.168.1.xxx or 10.0.0.xxx.  How is the isolation being done?  I wanted to isolate our IOT devices from our local area network but still allow them access to Internet.  Maybe best to finish installing the Ubiquity EdgeRouter X for this purpose?

Hi,

We have a SmartThings hub and SmartThings power outlet.

There is a device plugged into the SmartThings power outlet.

Also, we have an Amazon Echo Dot connected with the SmartThings power outlet.

There is also a Google Home in the room.

Ideally, what we would like to happen is that if someone turns off the SmartThings power outlet via the app or Amazon Alexa, that the SmartThings power outlet would turn back on after several hours, example 4 hours.

This would mean the device connected to the smart outlet could only ever be turned off for 4 hours at most.

Is there a way of configuring this via SmartThings, Amazon Alexa or with some other type of smart power outlet?

Thanks,
Robbie

What are your favorite uses for Alexa or other voice assistants?

I use Amazon Alexa to:
  • Turn things on/off around the house
  • Add things to my grocery list
  • Check the weather forecast
  • Check my morning commute time
  • Listen to music or audible
  • Answer random questions
  • If I had a more complicated calendar then I would ask it for my daily schedule
  • I don't really listen to the news

I use the Google Assistant to:
  • Navigate maps
  • Interact with voicemail
  • Reply to chat messages

Am I missing any of your favorite uses for voice assistants? Which assistant(s) do you use and why?

Hi,

We have an Amazon Echo Dot device.

On our Amazon Alexa account, we have many skills installed.

With these skills, Alexa can connect to various devices such as SmartThings, Philips Hue, etc to control devices which are connected to these hubs.

This Alexa account is a UK based account so we have no accessibility to US based Alexa skills.

We are missing out on connectivity with devices we have and would like to find a way to use both UK and US based Alexa skills.

There is a VPN we have called NordVPN which we have that allows us to connect to other servers for accessing services, applications, etc in other countries.
https://nordvpn.com/

We would like to know:

1. If we could use NordVPN to access and use the US based Alexa skills
2. If we could use NordVPN to access both US and UK based Alexa skills at the same time
3. If there is an easy way to download a US based Alexa skill onto UK based Alexa account and use it on UK account for Alexa
4. Any alternative solution for issue; we would like to download a US based Alexa skill on a UK based Alexa account where we need to also access the UK based skills

Kind regards,
Robbie

I have an ISO file that I'm hoping to mount so as to install Windows 10 IoT Core to  a Raspberry Pi

This is the ISO file name -->  Windows10_IoTCore_Packages_en-us_16299.iso

But when I click Mount, I get not a disk image but three MSI files.

  Here's the name of one of them  --> Windows_10_IoT_Core_X86_Packages.msi

When I click on the file, it starts an installation process.

I've watched in trepidation a few times as it starts an installation and then aborted it because I don't know where the installation is taking place,  I surely don't want to overwrite the Windows 10 Pro OS on the PC where I'm doing this work!  Ultimately I want a bootable copy of Windows 10 IoT Core on an Micro SD card that I can put in my Raspberry.  So, how do I do that?

Oh one more thing. Mounting the ISO seems to create a virtual DVD drive with drive letter E (my "real" DVD drive is letter D), and I see the three MSI files on the E drive,  

So, If I run an MSI file is it going to create a disk image of an Windows IoT Core installation disk on the DVD?  Which I can then copy to the Micro SD?

I know this is elementary stuff, but it's new to me,  Thanks for any help understanding this.

The deadly train derailment that occurred recently in DuPont, Washington, raises a lot of questions. It was a new route, the first trip tested with passengers, and the train was travelling at 50 mph over the zone’s speed limit. Could IoT play a role in infrastructure safety and prevent tragedies?

Hi,

I’m looking to either buy or make a very simple screen that can be controlled over the internet.

The screen will serve one simple purpose... show whether an office is VACANT or ENGAGED (i won’t go into the reason we need this :-)

Unfortunately a simple paper flip sign will not suffice.

I’m not even sure what to search for on the internet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello All

I am saying sorry in advance because I know less than zero about the capabilities of the Raspberry Pi, so if my question sounds stupid, take it from where it is coming from :D

Can a Pi run a pre-made GUI interface like windows or do I have to program my own?  If it can run a windows-looking OS can it connect to the internet? If the Pi loses power, when power returns can it be setup (like in windows there is an area for programs to begin at startup) so that the GUI comes back up and the internet automatically reconnects to a site?

Thanks!

I believe electrical cable length can be measured by sending a signal down it and timing the reflections from the unterminated end..  

see https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/39745/rs485-cable-lengths-and-reflections

Is there a similar method to measure the length of metal pipes or bars of say 15 mm and up cross section.. I guess in theory it should work. But ruling again this is the lack of insulation, very large cross section. Perhaps a metal bar will not work like a wave guide.  

i am searching for method to sense the lenght of lengths of track.. Just by touching a probe electrically.

I need to find a suitable Geofencing API for an IOT project that I'm working on (either free or otherwise).  

There are supposedly some 3rd party API's available that support geofencing, and I need to find something that's fairly robust/capable.  I just don't exactly know where to begin, since everything I've come across so far appears to be IOS or Andriod specific .. which doesn't apply to what I'm doing.  

What I'm envisioning is something similar to the following (please forgive my pseudo code):

// Load CurrentLocation with the latitude & longitude of the most recent location of IOT Device1
Device1 = getLocation(Device1);  

// Defines a geofence in the geofencing service
Fence1 = APIcallCreateFence(Fence1, polypoint1, polypoint2, polypoint3,...);  

// Query the API to see if the given location is inside the specified fence
isInFence = APIcallQueryFence(Fence1, Device1);  

Open in new window


Can anyone here recommend a suitable API for this?  My preference is for PHP or Javascript based if it's a downloadable library ... but the language isn't important if it's an externally hosted API.

Thanks in advance,
- Yvan

We are working on building a application for IOT (internet of things) using Arduino and SmartcardWifi.
Arduino constantly sends the data to the website http://192.168.169.81/

Using C# we want to access the stream of data from the  website http://192.168.169.81/ and process it further.  Need C# code which can lets us capture the stream of data and allows us to store it in database.
