A new guide in the Adafruit Learning System:
PyPortal IoT Plant Monitor with Microsoft Azure IoT and CircuitPython Keep forgetting to water your plants? Want to monitor the ambient temperature of your the room your plant is located in from across the world?
In this guide, you will build an Internet-enabled plant monitoring display by combining
Microsoft’s Azure IoT Hub and CircuitPython!
Using Azure with your CircuitPython IoT projects allows you to rapidly prototype (and even mass-prototype) advanced internet-of-things devices and connect them to Microsoft Azure services.
Once your CircuitPython device’s data is sent to an Azure IoT Hub, you can link your IoT Hub with all of the Azure Cloud Tools, such as:
Machine Learning Studio
Stream Analytics: Real-time Stream data processing capable of supporting thousands of IoT devices.
Notification Hubs: Push information and notifications from a website (or any backend) to CircuitPython devices.
Digital Twins: Add spatial and physical information to your CircuitPython device.
CircuitPython is perfect for building Internet-of-Things projects. This project uses the ESP32SPI CircuitPython library, which can use the ESP32 as a WiFi-coprocessor to send web requests.
We’ve created a CircuitPython Azure IoT helper module to make interacting with an Azure IoT Hub incredibly simple.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the
drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
