IoT Device Management with mDNS and Webduino – Hackster

Introduction

There are a ton of Arduino-compatible IoT devices available on the market these days.  Some with easy configurations and management, some with none at all.  Personally, I prefer Particle devices for their easy-to-use, high security cloud.  However, sometimes I don’t need the hassle or security of managing access tokens and device IDs.  And I know my potential users want to even know that stuff exists.  What if I could manage the settings on the device itself and make it easily discoverable without having to check DHCP leases to figure out the device IP address?
