The Node-RED Dashboard is a quick and easy way to visually interact with your network. Here, you will use it as client software for the OAP protocol the motes implement.

Visualize your Data using Node-RED Dashboard

The Node-RED Dashboard is a quick and easy way to visualize your data and send commands into your SmartMesh IP network.

Add a reset CLI command to your OCSDK application

This recipe indicates what default CLI commands your On-Chip SDK application has, and how you can add a "reset" command.





Access your SmartMesh IP devices through Weaved or ngrok

We detail how you can create a SmartMesh IP network manager out of a Raspberry PI and use ngrok to access its web interface from anywhere.






Interface your mote to a Force-Sensitive Resistor

An example On-Chip Software Development Kit project in which we integrate a low-cost force-sensitive resistor.





Interface your Mote to a Sensirion Temperature/Humidity Sensor

Sensirion I2C temperature/humidity sensors are almost trivially easy to use with the On-Chip SDK.  In this recipe, we connect a mote to the SHT21.

Building clouddata.dustcloud.org

We discuss what is behind the clouddata.dustcloud.org server, and how exactly the server is built.

Interface your Mote to a Thermocouple

We use the DC9005 Eterna QuikEval Adapter to connect the mote to an LTC2984 Multi-Sensor High Accuracy Digital Temperature Measurement System Demo Board to read a K-type thermocouple.

Change the unit of temperature in the DustLink Dashboard

The DustLink dashboard shows the temperature of the different motes in C. This recipe shows you how to change this to raw 1/100 C readings.

How the C library issues commands

We show how the C Library issues commands to your SmartMesh device.
