It’s hard to tell when a room on another floor, or across the building is occupied or vacant. At Adafruit we have a popular meeting room however sometimes it’s being used and if you want to have a meeting, you have to wait or go somewhere else. How handy would it be if we had a public dashboard to view if the room is occupied? Using an Adafruit FunHouse board, a infrared PIR sensor, and AdafruitIO WipperSnapper, we can make it happen.
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.
