Pi Switch – IoT LEDs #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with lights. Use a Pi and your phone to control LEDs with this project on Hackster.io:
We are going to use Raspberry Pi and Grandeur to build an internet switch. In other words, we will be controlling an LED connected to a GPIO pin of the RPi from our web app which we’ll build with Grandeur as our back-end. Our web app will send ON/OFF command to the Cloud which our RPi will listen to and will consequently update the voltage on its LED pin.
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.
