This is the last follow-up of the tutorials:
- M5Stack: Fresh air checker helps you to stay safe from #COVID-19 and,
- Nginx: Docker, Flask and Let's Encrypt (SSL),
in which I explained how to build a CO2 measuring device using a M5Stack and an SG30 sensor, send the data to GCP, and offer it using HTTPS.
Fig. 1: CO2 reporting widgets on Android and iOS.
These sensors can help to prevent Covid-19 spread in a room. If you want to implement the complete pipeline, check out the links above. This tutorial connects the data to your Android or iOS phone to see that in a Widget (see Fig. 1).
On Android, you can use the Gauge Widget application. In Fig. 2, you can see an example of how to configure the Widget to see the data published by the sensor and it results in Fig. 3.
