Blink over HTTP Arduino IoT with Fedora 22 POC

Internet of Things, its a very new thing to us but when we think of it, we had access to internet for a long amount of time and we come across "things" in day to day life,they have been making our life easier each day.
Let's say for example a light bulb, it consumes energy and produces light which helps us everyday.Technology and improvements has stripped down the consumption of resource to bare minimum and optimizing the output , Now we have a era where the mobile industry and teleco industry booming and the speed of internet being unimaginable as ever before. Hence, the idea of making things smarter by connecting them to internet and analyzing  petabytes of historical and real-time data and automating their operation.This will result in a smarter way of living. IoT affects almost all the major areas of the industry viz Agriculture, Healthcare,Home Automation and many more.

This post is POC of how easy it is to smartly control light on an Arduino without ethe…
