help with data exchange
« on: October 20, 2016, 07:42:00 am »
Hello to everybody. I'm trying to build some home "automation" and I started to play with arduino. I bought 4 Oak and after I broke 2 of them ;-), I could get the 3rd one working with my wifi network. I found a code that check a digital input, controls a digital output and sends the changing state of the input by email (with IFTTT). I uploaded it and the local side of the program works (the state of the input controls the led connected to the output) but the email never work. For sure I made some mistake with the IFTTT registration or programmation but I don't like the idea of using an external sevice anyway. Is it possible to send the state of the input to a Win10 computer (which sends email througha VB program)? Or does anybody have a better idea?
Thanks a lot.

I haven't used IFTTT, but my wife loves it.

Personally, I'd recommend checking out a service called Carriots, I wrote about it recently:,2234.0.html

It's complicated to learn, but once you get the hang of it you'll find it easy to have your Oak read an input then send an email.
