How to Automate Your Home with #AdafruitIO @makerio
[MakerIO] published a new video on home automation using Adafruit IO. For the sake of simplicity, (Robin) uses two Huzzah boards to create a ping-pong application between the two of them. One board houses a button, which changes the state of the other board’s LED based on the first button. This simple example can be applied to home automation – one board could be used to control the lights in your home, the garage door, or anything wired up to a relay.

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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
