The EzloPi smart devices provide automation through simple, customizable use with our open-source EzloPi platform, making daily life easier and improving human-machine interactions.
Before moving into this example, it is very important to know about the device registration, provisioning and converting the ESP32 device into an EzloPi device along with knowledge of Web Flasher, MiOS Mobile Application for Android/iOS and the MiOS Web Application.
In this project, we will see how to interface an MQ8 hydrogen gas sensor with an EzloPi device to monitor the concentration levels in our environment.
The MQ8 hydrogen gas sensor, when integrated with the EzloPi device, provides an efficient solution for detecting hydrogen gas (H2) in various settings. This unique combination empowers users to enhance safety, monitor gas leaks, and create intelligent controls to automate actions, such as activating ventilation systems, shutting off gas supplies, or triggering alarms in the event of high hydrogen gas concentrations.
The MQ8 is suitable for a wide range of applications, including home automation, industrial safety, laboratories, and hydrogen-powered vehicle charging stations.
The following components are required for interfacing with the EzloPi device:
The wiring diagram for the ESP32 30 pin is represented as below:
The following connections are made in order to complete the circuit setup.
From ESP32 to the MQ8 Hydrogen Gas Sensor
1. Set up your device/hardware by visiting https://config.ezlopi.com/
Now, select COM Port to which your ESP32 device is connected. In our case, the COM3 port is used.
You can download the MIOS Android app from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
