Receive a text notification when someone rings your doorbell! Whether you are in the backyard gardening, over at the neighbors house, or listening to music at full blast, you will always know when someone is at your door with this littleBits project. Install this doorbell outside your home, and never miss a ring.
How it works:
When the button is pressed on the SMS doorbell, it sends a signal through the cloudBit to IFTTT, which is set (via the SMS channel) to send you a text message (i.e. Knock knock!) when someone is at the door. IFTTT (If This Then That) is a service that lets you connect to different web apps through simple conditional statements.
The cloudBit gives you the power to design and build your own internet connected devices, enabling you to design products/projects that are specific and relevant to you. For more project ideas check out our Projects Page.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
