“Netflix Switch” Home Automation #IoT

Netflix wants you to build your own home automation electronics in order to automate at least the first half of “Netflix and chill” with their Make It campaign showing you how to build a wifi remote that automatically adjusts lighting, silences your phone, orders takeout, and of course, queues up your entertainment. The prototype shown uses a Particle and IR LED, and instructs makers to reverse engineer their TVs IR remote signals using Ladyada’s classic tutorial. What I like about this ad campaign is that it encourages people to make their own electronics projects from an accessible and fun angle.


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

  1. If anyone tries to build it you will need 3mm LED not 5mm as the parts list says. Also need a switch for it.
