“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.

  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.
