INTRODUCING LITTLEBITS SMART HOME KIT

Turn any household object into an internet-connected smart device with the littleBits Smart Home Kit!  Control your AC from anywhere. Automate your curtains to open at sunrise. Make a remote controlled pet feeder. The Smart Home Kit is the easiest way to Snap the Internet to Anything.

The Smart Home Kit contains 14 modules, ranging from a temperature sensor to the internet-connected cloudBit. It also has 11 accessories–including an AC switch that allows you to remotely control household appliances (like fans and lights) with a littleBits circuit. No need to mess with any electrical wiring. Nothing in your house is too old to learn a few new tricks!

The kit includes a fold out poster with information about every module in the kit as well as project ideas to transform every room in your home including a smart refrigerator, retrofitted curtains that open at sunrise, and a smart lighting system, among other inventions. The possibilities are infinite. There are step by step instructions for every project illustrated in the poster as well as hundreds more online.

 

Good Morning Sunshine –> A double duty alarm clock that wakes you up by opening your curtains and playing your favorite songs.
