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.
