  • Download the latest release of NSSM software and extract anywhere in your machine. Copy the  nssm.exe  file and paste in c:\  Directory (Installed : nssm 2.24)
  • Run the command  c:\>nssm install Grafana  from Administrator command prompt.
  • It will Pop-Up the NSSM Service Installer

  • Choose the Grafana path in the application tab (Ex: C:\grafana-5.0.4\bin\grafana-server.exe )
  • The Startup directory automatically added when selscted the correct path (Ex: C:\grafana-5.0.4\bin )
  • Set the Display Name as Grafana in Details tab (Ex : Grafana )
  • Set startup type: as Automatic (Delayed Start)  in Details tab
  • Log on tab choose Local System account  if you don’t have grafana credentials. else you have then choose This account  and enter the mail id  and set password  then confirm  again.

Workshop : 20171001-Internet Of Things Using ESP8266

“If you think that the internet has changed your life, think again. The IoT is about to change it all over again!” –

— Brendan O’Brien, Aria systems

Workshop : Internet Of Things using ESP8266

ESP8266 is popular Wi-Fi chip and Internet of things is one of the fastest growing technologies. So we thought to conduct a technical workshop about IOT using ESP8266. You’ll learn the basic concepts and features of the Internet of Things and will be able to build projects using the ESP8266 NodeMCU platform. You’ll also discover fundamental concepts of cloud computing, sensor reading, connecting the ESP8266 to the Internet, wireless interfaces and controlling devices with Android phones. You’ll also learn to use the most popular open platforms for managing sensor data from the ESP8266, how to trigger actuators remotely, and how to read information on your Android Smart Phones. if you attend this workshop you will able to do IOT projects by you-self also you can help others to lean about IOT. Interested, can join this workshop. The duration is seven hours in a day and details are mentioned below and refer the image also.

Session-1 (Morning)

  • Overview of Internet of things.
  • Get started with ESP8266 and development board.
  • Basics interface : GPIO,Timer, File System, WiFi.
  • Basic Experiments : LED, RGB LED, Buzzer, Button, Relay.
  • Some More Experiments : PWM, WiFi, TCP, UDP, SNPT, RTC, MQTT.

Session-2 (Afternoon)

  • Real time Project 1 : Smart Device Control with monitor (Home Automation devices-Online/Offline).
  • Real Time Project 2 : Smart RGB Light (Online/Offline).
  • Project 3 : Network Status Indicator.
  • Project 4 : Data Logger.


  • Workshop is to make the students skill full and efficient for Internet of things related concepts.
  • The students to do their final year projects by them-self.
  • Apply Internet of things application in your day-to-day.

Workshop : Internet Of Things Using ESP8266-Details


The board you got should already have AT with all the needed libraries flashed on it. In order to access its
console, you will need to connect it to your computer with the micro-USB cable, and access the serial interface that
appears with a terminal program
For windows the serial interface to appear in your system, you will need to install the drivers for CP2102. Once you have that,
you can use either Hyper Terminal, PuTTy, ESPlorer or CoolTerm to connect to it, following this guide.
The parameters for the connection are: 115200 baud rate, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow control.
Hello world!
Once you are connected, press “enter” and you should see the ESPlorer terminal prompt, that looks like this:

It’s traditional to start with a “Hello world!” program, so type this and press “enter”:
If you see “Hello world!” displayed in the next line, then congratulations, you got it working.
