Wio Link - 3 Steps. 5 Minutes. Build Your IoT Applications!
Wio Link is designed to simplify your IoT development. It is an ESP8266 based open-source Wi-Fi development board to create IoT applications by virtualizing plug-n-play modules to RESTful APIs with mobile APPs.
The traditional methodology of building IoT applications consists of electronic engineering, micro-controller programming, network programming, IoT protocols handling and application development. Every step involves various hardware and software knowledge and challenges.
This time, we define a new way to create IoT applications.
No hardware programming. No breadboard. No jumper wires. No soldering.
3 steps. 5 minutes. Build your own IoT applications!
Wio Link provides simple visual configuration via mobile APPs to replace the complex micro-controller programming. Drag and drop the sensor tags to certain pins then you can visually set up the hardware.
OTA (Over-The-Air) Firmware Updates
Wio Link compiles firmware through cloud and can do OTA (Over-The-Air) firmware updates. All the hardware libraries are ready in the cloud and you can proceed with software and applications development directly.
Wio Link connects to the large library of Grove modules. Grove is a family of plug and play, open-source sensors and actuators with standard interfaces as well as various functions. Much like Lego™, it takes an approach of building blocks to assemble a project. No breadboard. No jumper wires. No soldering.
Note: By now there have been 30+ Grove modules compatible with Wio Link and you can find most of them in the Rewards. We're working to add more continuously.
Wio Link provides basic IFTTT (if-this-then-that) applications for you to interact with friends through Seeed IFTTT Channel. Make the LED strip light up in random colors or set up a reminder of wearing more clothes when it becomes colder. You could create more with Wio Link.
Android & iOS APPs
Wio Link mobile APPs can be used on both Android and iOS devices.
RESTful API resources let you develop IoT applications easily with the “visualized” sensors and actuators.
