Internet of Things (IoT) is the new industrial slogan for connecting intelligent and unintelligent devices to the web. The problem of security of data transfer, interoperability of different proposed methodologies, the ubiquity of Wi-Fi and the development of low power consuming MCUs has broadened the search for the best alternative technology for IoT in the oil and gas sector. This paper focus on the communication method for IoT devices to determine the level of functionality and the efficiency of interfacing the new MOD-WIFI-ESP8266-DEV Wi-Fi unit based on the IEEE 802.11 standard with MSP430 by Texas Instrument. The system controls LEDs and monitors Temperature/Humidity sensor (DHT11) using Android application and web service. The system presents in three-layered structure an ecosystem of lightweight, small size, reduced cost and low power IoT system. It is expected that industries/users of this system would be able to control, monitor, and analyse data generated by the web of connected devices.
