To work through this tutorial, you will need:
An Octopus board
The Octopus board is a small board based on a ESP8266 Chip that can be programmed e.g. using the Arduino IDE.
You can buy it e.g. in the Fab-Lab.eu Tindie shop.
There are several editions of the board. You can use any edition for this tutorial and don't need the Bosch IoT Suite edition.
Arduino IDE - find details later at Step 2 - Configure the Octopus
A USB cable to connect the board to your PC
A 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network within range of the device
A web browser that is up to date and does not block cookies
An email address that you can use to register a Bosch-ID user account
