PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Story

 

 

Introducing WizFiBuddy 

WizFiBuddy is a tiny office assistance hardware  which utilizes WizFi360.This utilizes WizFi360 Wi-Fi module from Wiznet .The WizFi360 wi-fi module is a cost-effective WiFi module that supports both TCP/IP and microcontrollers.

Yes , you have a Wi-Fi module and possibilities are endless. 

Currently it has following features

  • A Real time clock display with Wiznet's WizFi360 using SNTP(Simple Network Time Protocol) Server 
  • Semaphore Device - Lets add a small semaphore on your  work desk. You can use it to tell whatever you want to people around it. For Example , because you need some concentration and you'd like your colleagues not to disturb you or to tell the status of the work you are managing , or say which mood are you today. The possibilities are endless.

Gather the Parts:

  • Arduino Mega
  • Grove_WizFi360 (I have designed a custom PCB which is compatible with  Grove System ) - It's an Arduino compatible board. It has a white Grove connector, and make it convenient for using Grove products with the board.
  • (0.96 Inch) I2C/IIC 128x64 OLED Display Module
  • Grove - 4 pin Male Jumper to Grove 4 pin Conversion Cable
  • Male to Female Jumper Cable 

We will be using Arduino Mega for this project 

How to connect flame sensor to Arduino MEGA 2560 - Sensors ...

Why not Arduino Uno ?

The Arduino Uno has only one hardware UART .You would have to go to a Mega to get more hardware serial pins. Also  SoftwareSerial Library isn't capable of 115200 baud rate(despite "allowing this as settings).Some forums suggest as high as 57600 is workable.Wizfi360's default baud rate is 115200 and with SoftwareSerial Library, this is unreliable especially at higher baud rates.

 

You may check out my previous tutorial on hackster.io .I have explained few examples that how Wizfi360 can be controlled through AT Commands.

About WizFi360

The WizFi360 wi-fi module is a cost-effective WiFi module that supports both TCP/IP and microcontrollers.

Connectivity is provided via 2.4Ghz wireless connection, WizFi360 is compatible with IEEE802.11 b/g/n standards and supports SoftAP, Station and SoftAP+Station modes.

WizFi360 provides time-to-market savings as a self-contained internet-enabling solution.

 

Features :

WizFi360 is perfect for mobiles wireless applications such as remote monitoring and sensor applications. Ease of integration and programming can vastly reduce development time and minimize system cost. The module has been designed to provide designers with a simple Wi-Fi solution that has following key features:

  • WiFi 2.4G, 802.11 b/g/n
  • Support Station / SoftAP / SoftAP+Station operation modes
  • Support “Data pass-through” and “AT command data transfer” mode
  • Support serial AT command configuration
  • Support TCP Server / TCP Client / UDP operating mode
  • Support configuration of operating channel 0 ~ 13
  • Support auto 20MHz / 40MHz bandwidth
  • Support WPA_PSK / WPA2_PSK encryption
  • Serial port baud rate up from 600bps to 2Mbps with 16 common values
  • Support up to 5 TCP / UDP links
  • Obtaining IP address automatically from the DHCP server (Station mode)
  • DHCP service for Wireless LAN clients (AP mode)
  • Support DNS for communication with servers by domain name
  • Support “Keep-Alive” to monitor TCP connection
  • Support “Ping” for monitoring network status
  • Built-in SNTP client for receiving the network time
  • Support built-in unique MAC address and user configurable
  • Support firmware upgrade by UART Download / OTA (via WLAN)
  • Industrial grade (operating temperature range: -40 ° C ~ 85 ° C)
  • KC, CE, FCC certification

Pinouts and vector images can be downloaded from my GitHub repo :https://github.com/tinkererway/pinouts_tw/tree/main/WizNet/WizFi360

 

Grove_WizFi360 (I have designed a custom PCB which is compatible with  Grove System ) - It's an Arduino compatible board. It has a white Grove connector, and make it convenient for using Grove products with the board.

This version of Grove_WizFi360 is not compatible with 3.3 v microcontrollers, because no connectors are provided for it.

The Grove_WizFi360 was featured on seeedstudio social media platforms

Web Server Controlled Semaphore Device

A semaphore at your office Desk !

Free to talk, "bit stressed", working on something important? Tell your Colleagues with the web server controlled semaphore. It's very simple to use. Open a browser and type the wizfi360's IP address. Your webserver will have option to inform "you are busy " or "you are available"
