Compare & Contrast: Two ESP8266 WiFi Relay Modules #IoT #IoTuesday
Whether you already have an Itead Sonoff or the Electrodragon IoT Relay Board, or are simply exploring relay solutions for your IoT project, check out this review by Nathan Chantrell of these two modules.
I’m using these with MQTT and Node-RED so that they seamlessly integrate with the other WiFi and 433MHz remote mains devices that I already have. In day to day use there will be no way to tell which type of device is controlling a particular light or appliance which is just how it should be.
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.
