Free SwitchThat beta for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
SwitchThat’s home automation app is free for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts for a limited time. More info here.
We know how frustrating it feels to have to control the different parts of your IoT smart home using separate, incompatible Apps. That’s why we developed One. Simple, unified, smart control of your connected lightbulbs, power sockets, speakers, and more.
SwitchThat One works well on all your devices, giving you easy control of your smart home from your phone, tablet or PC. Access One through your wifi at home, or over a secure connection when at work or on the move.
We’re sure that you feel as strongly as we do that control of your home should remain with you. We designed One to run entirely on a hub in your home — no data is stored elsewhere, and you won’t lose control of your home because a cloud service becomes unavailable.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
