Integrating WordPress with the Internet of Things: A How-To Guide

The global innovation scene is always making steady headway and at a marvelous speed as well. While many developments and advances have played a part in this change, the Internet of Things (IoT) is leading the charge here. IoT seamlessly helps connect regular items to interface with the web, enabling real-time data collection, analysis, and automation, reshaping our interactions with the environment.

In the meantime, WordPress has also set its place in the market as the leading platform for making user-friendly websites and online experiences. Its instinctive interface, huge plugin ecosystem, and vigorously active developer community have helped millions. Nonetheless, as our reality turns out to be progressively interconnected and information-driven, an inquiry emerges: could WordPress and IoT, at any point, team up? The answer is not just affirmative but also holds promising potential.

In this blog, I will walk you through the exciting prospect of IoT. Together, we will explore the technological advances that help overcome any issues between these two and showcase the different ways they can team up to deliver creative and intuitive encounters.

WordPress and IoT Together: An Overview

The combination of the IoT and WordPress presents a compelling opportunity in the modern business landscape. IoT enables data collection and exchange, while WordPress serves as the content management system (CMS), allowing the development of dynamic websites. Together, they offer a plethora of advantages for businesses. While IoT sensors can gather data from equipment or processes, the integrated WordPress website can be used for real-time monitoring and analysis. This helps enhance operational efficiency and possibly even reduce costs. Personalized customer experiences can be achieved through IoT-driven recommendations and integrated into WordPress websites.

WordPress and IoT: How to Make Them Work Together

IFTTT (If This Then That)

A no-cost web-based service, IFTTT helps users to establish “recipes”. Before you ask, these “recipes” are simply automated workflows triggered by specific predefined events. The solution serves as a bridge between IoT devices and WordPress websites, allowing users to create recipes that trigger actions on their site based on data received from IoT devices. For instance, you could use an IFTTT recipe to automatically publish a WordPress blog when the IoT sensor detects a reading surpassing a threshold for the given metric.


LittleBits offers actual electronic modules that snap together magnetically instead of needing to be soldered together. These modules are fit for tasks such as detecting light, temperature, or even movement. The littleBits offerings serve as an introductory platform for folks who wish to explore basic IoT capabilities. Though these modules are not meant for extensive implementations, the littleBits modules can also be linked to a computer, which then transmits data to a WordPress website via plugins or customized coding.


Particle is a cloud-based platform meant for making connected devices. It offers not only hardware development kits but also cloud services and software tools to help streamline the development and management of products connected to the internet.

Suffice it to say that Particle is a robust option for businesses or developers looking to develop bespoke IoT solutions. Oh, and did I tell you that Particle devices can be programmed to collect data and transmit it to the Particle cloud, from which the data can be accessed and showcased on a WordPress website using Particle’s APIs or even custom integrations?

And remember folks — the best solution for integrating these two solutions will entirely depend on your specific needs and technical expertise.
