Is adding IoT as difficult as this forum suggests?
I have over 50 years programming experience, 40 years in microcomputers, mainly assembly language.
I would like to add IoT WIFI to a simple device to output data and error messages to a cell phone to save the cost of adding an LCD display and provide remote access to a difficult location.
I know very little about WIFI protocols and the integration appears rather daunting based on forum activity here.
IS THIS SOMETHING I COULD USE OR AM I CORRECT THAT THE LEARNING CURVE IS VERY STEEP?
HAVING SUCCEEDED IN CLIMBING THE STEEP CURVE IS THIS GOING TO BE RELIABLE?
OUTPUT DATA IS ELEMENTARY ASCII STRINGS, IS THERE A CELLPHONE AP THAT WOULD DISPLAY THEM OR DO I HAVE TO CLIMB THAT LEARNING CURVE TOO?
