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!
Good Morning Sunshine –> A double duty alarm clock that wakes you up by opening your curtains and playing your favorite songs.
Smart Fridge –> Get alerted if your refrigerator door has been left open for too long!
Wireless Lighting –> Turn on a lamp [or any other appliance that plugs into the wall] anytime from anywhere.
These Smart Home Kit projects are guaranteed to push the limits of how we envision a connected home. You’ve probably seen smart lamps, smart speakers, and smart thermostats before – but have you ever seen a smart toilet paper dispenser?
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
