Hey guys, this is your hardware friend kayode. Hope you have been good? Well today we will focus on reading analog voltage with our arduino. Signals that we make use of and that surround us are usually analog that is they vary with time. A good example of an analog signal is the electricity supply we have in our homes. It is a sine wave that varies with time. Since we now know that the […]


Hello there guys. It’s your hardware friend Kayode. Hope you have been making and creating. Well if your answer is yes, am quite elated because you have been practicing. Today I want to introduce the concept of RFID. What is RFID? RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. Transfer of data is done using electromagnetic fields over a short distance. RFID has become so popular in recent years. It is used in places like malls to […]

Controlling Arduino Using Smartphone via Bluetooth

                Hey there guys, this is your hardware friend Kayode.  Today we will be controlling the arduino input/output pins via Bluetooth. It will be cool to be able to control an appliance remotely from the comfort of your bed, right? I think so too. The Bluetooth module that we will be using is the HC-05 Bluetooth module that comes on a breakout board. So we will connect this module […]


Hey there guys, it’s your hardware friend Kayode and today we will be unboxing the functionalities of a shift register. The shift register we will be using is the SN74HC595 from Texas instruments. As you build exciting projects with the arduino, you might already be thinking: “What happens when I run out of pins?”.  Blinking of LEDs in various patterns seems to be the most popular project implemented on the arduino platform. The most popular […]


Hey there guys, it’s your hardware friend kayode and together today we will be focusing on the TSOP1738 IR receiver. The TSOP1738 belongs to the TSOP17xx family. The xx represents the modulating frequency which in the case of the TSOP1738 is 38Khz. IR Transmitter and receiver is used to control any device wirelessly. We make use of them daily in our various homes. Television remote and Television are the best example of IR transmitter and […]

DIY Greeting Card

In the spirit of the Yuletide season, we thought it’d be nice for makers of all ages to make something for the season. So today we will be creating an awesome DIY Electronics based greeting cards. Asides the fact that this will teach the concepts of basic electronics, it may be an opportunity for families to bond by building something together. So grab the cardboard Dads and the Markers Moms, lets have some fun. Components […]

Automatic water level indicator and controller using ultrasonic sensor (HC-SR04)

  Hey guys, this is kayode and together over the next couple of weeks we will be unboxing some really cool projects ranging from home automation systems to home security systems. At the end of each project am very sure that putting together your own project will not be a problem. Let’s get started. In our day to day activities, it is common to have shortage of water or overflow of water in our storage […]

Arduino Kit Tutorials: Measuring Temperature and Humidity with DHT11

Introduction Another cool sensor present in the Hub360 Arduino kit is the DHT11 temperature and Humidity sensor. The DHT11 is a low cost temperature and humidity sensor that operates using the 1-wire protocol. it features a calibrated digital signal output with the temperature and humidity sensor complex. Its technology ensures the high reliability and excellent long-term stability. This sensor includes a resistive element and a sense of wet NTC temperature measuring devices. It has excellent quality, […]

Arduino Kit Tutorials: Measuring Distance with the Ultrasonic Sensor

Hi guys, this is the second tutorial in a series of tutorial planned to get beginners up to speed with electronics using the hub360 Arduino Kit.
