IoT Projects

Pool Temperature Monitor

It’s getting closer to summer in the States and that means cooling off in the pool. Blake built a pool temperature probe which is waterproof and shielded from the elements. Data from the probe is broadcast to Adafruit IO and displayed locally on a MagTag e-Ink IoT display. – hackaday.io

Machine Learning Package Detector

Build a machine learning package detector with Microsoft Lobe that sends you an email notification when a package is left at your door. – Adafruit Learning System

Freeform Weather Sculpture

A freeform circuit sculpture that displays the current weather forecast. – hackaday.io

Basics of Embedded and IoT Development with Python

An introduction to using Python for embedded IoT development. – kalebujordan.dev

FunHouse Motion Detecting Lights with LIFX Bulbs

Control WiFi Light bulbs with the (new!) Adafruit FunHouse WiFi home automation development board. – Adafruit Learning System

A DIY Extensible and Privacy-focused Smart Home Hub

Xasin is building an open-source smart home hub to address privacy and interoperability concerns with existing smart home hubs. – hackaday.io

NEW Adafruit IoT Hardware: FunHouse WiFi Home Automation Development Board

FunHouse is the newest Adafruit IoT development board designed to make it easy to build home automation projects with little or no soldering. There are built in sensors for light, pressure, humidity and temperature sensors. Three JST PH plugs allow for quick connection of STEMMA boards that use digital or analog I/O, and there’s a STEMMA QT port for any I2C devices. – Adafruit

Sneak Peek of Adafruit.IO Wippersnapper – Analog inputs working!

Wippersnapper is our upcoming no-code IoT interface for Adafruit.IO – it lets you turn any WiFi-capable board into an IoT device without any programming – simply select what devices are connected to which pins on the hardware and it will auto-configure the firmware and even create a IO feed you can then log and/or use to control other devices by triggering events or webhooks. We recently added analog inputs, and wanted to show off how it works with selecting an element (potentiometer) and the attached analog input pin, to getting it in as an MQTT feed…all in just about 1 minute! – Adafruit Blog

Adafruit IO Stats

Adafruit IO has 370,000+ total users! Here are the interesting stats from the last 30 days:

  • Total Feeds: 612,000+ (and counting!).
  • There are over 21,000+ feeds online as of time of writing.
  • There are an average of 5,000+ MQTT connections over the last 30 days.
