This is not the first time we’re introducing you, guys, to Pi-Cubes. We actually wrote an introductory article a couple of months back, when the device started its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, which was completed not long ago thanks to 29 backers who contributed the sum of $5,636 CAD to help bring the project to life.

For those of you who are not in the loop and don’t want to read our introductory article, we would take this opportunity to inform you that Pi-Cubes is a modular, app-enabled HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) home automation system based on the Raspberry Pi and powered by Canonical’s Snappy Ubuntu Core OS.

It supports up to 24 I/Os and 4 thermostats and lets customers use different I/O boards for all kinds of home automation projects. Pi-Cubes also comes with the Pi-Cubes Communication Thermostat device, which uses the Modbus open-source communication protocol to allow access through a Raspberry Pi’s I2C serial port.
