This one is for everyone who only got an Air Quality Egg Egg Sensor Shield. I wanted to write it as a way of aggregating a bunch of information that is scattered across the interwebs presently. I’m also going to write it from the perspective of a Nanode as the host processor as that’s what I’m most familiar with and that’s what I wrote some code for. Here is the basic idea of how to get up and running quickly.
- Send us your MAC address (e.g. 00:04:a1:3c:11:22) from your Nanode to support AT wickeddevice DOT com (you know the drill). We need to register your device with Cosm to fold it into the Air Quality Egg network. If you run the sketch below and look at the serial data output, the MAC address gets printed out for your convenience.
- We will respond by email and let you know you’re hooked up on the back end.
- Download the software from Git Hub.
- Copy everything from the libraries folder to your arduino libraries folder.
- Load the AQEBaseSensor sketch onto your Nanode.
- Go to http://airqualityegg.com and type in your MAC address .
- Enjoy your data!
For people who got full-up Air Quality Eggs, we will have basically done everything up to step 6 for you (with different sketches). I’m completely swamped through December at least… it would be totally amazing if someone from the Air Quality Egg community could port this sketch to Arduino/Wiznet… I think it should be a relatively straightforward exercise.
