Control things via the Internet!
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of different everyday devices using an internet connection (usually WiFi). Controlling traditionally ‘dumb’ electronics, appliances and other devices is now possible thanks to the advances in IoT technology, combined with the rise of affordable, low-power, internet-connected microcontrollers.
Whether you want to turn off your home lighting with a smartphone, send alerts from sensors to other devices, start your coffee machine from your shower (!) – the possibilities are truly endless.
We stock masses of products which can be used for IoT projects. A microcontroller with built-in WiFi is as great base for a connected home project, with feature-packed boards such as the Raspberry Pi and Adafruit feather.
You’ll also need sensors, buttons, displays and anything else you might want to interact with – check out our components section for a huge range of supplies.
