NEW GUIDE: #AdafruitIO Home: Lights and Temperature #IoTuesday
Interested in making your house a bit smarter? Why not start small by building a Cardboard Smart Home!
This learn guide is the first in the IO Home Series covering building a cardboard house, controlling its lights, and monitoring temperature! This guide was designed to work with both Arduino and CircuitPython, so you can build your home with whatever hardware you have available.
What is the IO Home Series?
Adafruit IO Home is a series of learning guides covering all aspects of a smart house: from temperature monitoring to an intelligent home security system.
Want to scale up from the cardboard home to a real home? We’ve selected real-world components, sensors, and hardware which can also be installed in your home, office or laboratory!
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.
