NEW GUIDE: Smart Bathroom App

Know when it’s open for business.

Looking to dip your toes into the IoT realm without hitting too many technical speed bumps? So were we, until we picked up some parts that were a little too advanced for our hobby. After some research into other solutions on Adafruit, The Spark Core stood out to pair with our other parts to get our sensors talking to the internet.

The best way to get started with any embedded project is to try to solve a small problem you have, no matter how minor, to keep you on track. Our problem was seeing people not knowing if a bathroom was in use or not and react with a quick experiment on giving people a heads up from their computers or seats.

This project will show you how to share sensor data through the Spark Core API, wire up your hardware, and dive you into JavaScript. The wiring and firmware are very simple and the web programming isn’t too intense; we had this up and running within two weeks.

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.
