Arduino Manager For Mac



Integration between Mac and Arduino has never been so easy !!! 

Arduino Manager is an app to control your Arduino board and receive information from it through 
  • Official Ethernet Shield
  • Official WiFi Shield
  • USB port.



The app shows a grid and clicking on it you can insert specialized widgets to send and receive information from Arduino. There are 4 pages of widgets of 20 widgets each, for a total of 80.

Available widgets are: 

➤ Display Widget
: This widget shows values coming from your Arduino (i.e. Temperature). It can now show numbers with 0,1,2,3 decimal digits. Double click on it to choose the precision.





➤ Led Widget:
This widget shows a Led that can be turned on and off through digital values from Arduino. Double click on a Led Widget to change LED color.





➤Switch Widget: This widget sets a digital value to Arduino. 









➤ Switch & LED WidgetThis widget is the combination of the two previous widgets, to save space when they are used together with the same variable. Double tap on the LED Widget to change LED’s color. The LED is turned on and off with messages from the board to show exactly the status of a digital value on the board.


➤ Secured SwitchThis widget is aimed to operate critical devices since it can't be operated by mistake.
To operate the switch, double click on the widget to remove the security protection.




➤ Push Button Widget: 
This widget temporarily sets a digital value to Arduino. Double click on the Push Button Widget to change the button color.





➤ Knob Widget:
This widget sets a non-digital value to Arduino.






➤ Slider Widget: This widget analogous to the Knob Widget but it has a slider instead of a knob.





➤ SD Widget
: This widget shows the list of files available in the root of SD Card. Selecting a file, user can see the file content or save the file on the Mac.






➤ Graph Widget: This widget graphs values coming from your Arduino (i.e. Temperature). Double tap on it to zoom it in and change values range.




➤ Logged Data Graph Widget: Logged Data Graph Widget: This widget graphs up to 5 values logged onto the SD Card attached to Arduino. Double tap on it to zoom it in and then refresh values. iOSController library and iOSControllerWiFi library have helping functions to log data onto the SD Card.




➤ Knob Widget:
 This widget configures an alarm on the Arduino board which is then fired at the desired time. The alarm is fired even if the Mac is not connected and retained across power off - power on cycles.



➤ 
Command WidgetThis widget allows to send a command (text message) to Raspberry Pi once the yellow button is tapped. Double Tap the widget to enter the command text. You can add more Command Widgets to send different commands.





➤ Sound Alarm WidgetThis widget sound an alarm each time the associated condition is verified. Double click on it to configure the condition and the alarm to sound.



➤ Threshold WidgetThis widget allows setting a threshold to the Arduino board (e.g. the room temperature under which the board has to start an heater). Double click on it to set the threshold's range and its actual value.


➤ Console WidgetThis widget helps the user to debug the Arduino code, receiving and displaying debugging messages. Double click on it to expand the console.





Each widget is associated with a variable (i.e. T), which is either written or read by the sketch running on the board. In this way the Mac app can receive information from the Arduino board or control it.

The application can be easily connected to more boards (one at a time), to switch from one board to another click on the Configuration Widget.

Moreover, the user can easily manage different lists of widgets and switch among them in order to control different boards and/or projects.



The user can share widget configuration between own devices and other users, through an email message.

Three Arduino libraries (iOSController, iOSControllerWiFi, iOSControllerSerial) are available to easily integrate your own projects with Arduino Manager.

IOSController, related documentation, a test sketch and a video tutorial are available for free at the bottom of this page.

Arduino Manager has a Code Generator (available as In App purchase) which allows the user to generate the communication infrastructure between the Arduino board and iOS device and generate the code for each chosen widget in order to simplify the programming effort on Arduino board. All this in few steps. 

PLEASE NOTE: Arduino Manager supports only the official Ethernet Shield with the Ethernet Library or the official WiFi shield and WiFi Library.
