Get Started with the Arduino IoT Cloud


Are you ready to add some digital life into your everyday routine? Whether you’re a coding beginner or an experienced professional looking to create and build connected projects, the latest phase of Arduino’s IoT cloud platform offers something for everyone.

With the full release of the Arduino IoT Cloud, users can get an end-to-end solution for designing and building a range of digitally connected projects.

If you’re new to the coding world, Arduino offers a low-code approach that still makes it possible to create an optimized workflow (with simple device registration, so getting your project up and running is quick and easy). If you’re an advanced user, you can interact with the platform through a variety of methods, including JavaScript, WebSocket, command line tools, HTTP REST API, and MQTT.


Core Features of the Arduino IoT Cloud

Here are just some of the most significant features you get with the Arduino IoT Cloud:

  • A Simple Onboarding Process – when you set up a new device, the platform automatically generates a sketch layout that you can quickly, immediately edit. This means you’ll be able to get started building your project faster.

  • Code Generated Automatically – No real experience coding? No real desire to code? No problem. The platform will automatically generate code that can be adapted as needed with minimal effort. This makes it a great tool to get anyone started on creating IoT projects. Young students especially can benefit from this introduction to IoT.

  • Mobile-Optimized Dashboard – Real world projects can and ought to be built anywhere, and with the mobile dashboard, you can monitor your projects, check your data, and control remote sensors from anywhere. Want to access and control your project while you’re out in the field? You can. Prefer to stay in and keep tabs on your project from the comfort of your couch? That’s possible too.



Best of all, it’s never been easier to sign up and get started with the Arduino IoT Cloud. Just login or create a new Arduino account, and you’ll be guided to connect a device to start a new project.


Available Plans

With free access to the Arduino IoT Cloud, you can use the available open hardware to transmit data across multiple connected objects on the platform. So, if you’re a professional who needs to easily connect and manage a fleet of devices, you can. If you’re a teacher who wants to share sketches with a classroom of students, the Arduino IoT Cloud is proud to support STEM initiatives.

You can even use pre-existing code, so that students or entry-level workers can develop and understand projects with no prior experience. The tool is meant for absolute beginners and advanced professionals alike.

If you’re looking for additional features, there are also paid subscription options. For example, the Maker plan gives you extra data storage, access to unlimited compilation times, and the ability to save more sketches and connect more devices.

The Arduino IoT Cloud can be fully integrated with a variety of existing non-Arduino technologies, including Google Sheets, Amazon’s Alexa, IFTTT, most Linus-based devices, and Zapier. If you’re a professional developer, you can even create custom apps with the Arduino IoT API.

With the secure element crypto chips that are embedded into Arduino IoT-enabled boards, you get a range of security benefits, including X.509 certificate-based authentication.
