We’re all familiar with WiFi. It runs our home, lets us stream our favorite movies, and keeps us from having to talk with other people when we’re at a coffee shop. But there's more ways to use WiFi than simply accessing the internet through different applications!

Picking up off a previous WiFi tutorial called Sending Sensor Data Over Wifi we showed how to create a simple, closed, peer-to-peer network that was able to read data from an environmental sensor and remotely output it on a Serial LCD. The next logical step was to take this same idea and expand it into an IoT project and view the sensor readings from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

Now, no matter where in the world I find myself, I can always check in on conditions at home!
