Can the Arduino MKR WiFi 1010 board be connected to a Droplet? Do you have specific instructions to upload this? Thanks.

Hi there,

I believe that this is technically doable but you will have to up a service on the Droplet that will communicate with the Arduino.

This could be an HTTP server, an MQTT broker, or any other type of server that can communicate over the network. You would usually code this using a language like Python, Node.js, etc.

Then on the Arduino side, you’ll need to write code that communicates with the service you’ve set up on the Droplet. If you’re using HTTP, you can utilize the WiFiNINA library to create HTTP requests:

After you’ve written your Arduino app, you can setup your Arduino IDE to upload it to the MKR WiFi 1010 board.

I don’t think that there is an explicit tutorial on DiogitalOcean on how to set all that up, but feel free to share more details on what your end goal is and I’ll be happy to try and advise you further.
