Building your own homebrew Alarm System Using Particle and VictorOps
I’m a Maker. I like to make things. A few months ago, one of our dev’s at VictorOps got me interested in Particle.io Photon Microcontrollers.
I wanted to replace my home alarm system with a homebrew version that could utilize VictorOps to alert me when a door or window opens (and tell me which one).
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.
