This is might not look very useful to access a Yoctopuce sensor, but it opens the door to new use-cases for the YoctoHub-GSM itself. For instance, you can now implement two factor authentication.

A pseudo terminal for the Yocto-Serial

By seb, in Tiny PC and Programming, may 20,2016.

Many home automation projects use mini-PCs running under Linux. Some of these mini-PCs have an HDMI output, but other, such as the OLinuXino, don't have a video output. In this case, the solution to configure these boards is to use a serial console. The problem is that no computer has a serial port anymore and if you have an old enough computer to have an RS232 port, you can't use it because the RS232 port works in 12 Volts. The traditional solution is to use a USB-serial adapter sold by the constructor. But you can also use a Yocto-Serial.

Passive monitoring of an empty house

By martinm, in Measures and Internet of Things, april 29,2016.

Let's imagine an isolated house, unoccupied most of the time, with the heater set to the minimum to prevent pipes from freezing. No Internet, no phone... only electricity. How to make sure, without going there, that: a/ the boiler has not broken down , b/ no one settled in inside the said house without your knowledge? We had a few ideas...
