The DFRobot Gravity: IoT Starter Kit is an all-in-one bundle for micro:bit beginners to quickly learn, experience and build Internet of Things projects!
The kit comes with a micro:bit V1 microcontroller, expansion board, a Wi-Fi module and 7 sensors/actuators that are wildly used in real-life IoT applications.
You can easily set up the Wi-Fi connection in the MakeCode Block Editor, then program your micro:bit and eventually interact with your smart devices! To make things even easier and fun, we developed EasyIoT, a free educational IoT platform that allows subscribers to exchange and visualize their data. There's also a handy quick start guide to make getting started easier than ever.
This starter kit is compatible with hundreds of DFRobot Gravity modules, bringing endless possibilities to your IoT applications.
micro:bit with Internet connectivity
The kit comes with a plug and play Wi-Fi module 'Obloq' that adds Internet connectivity to your micro:bit
To start an Internet connection, simply complete your Wi-Fi name and password into the coding blocks.
Other than EasyIoT, Obloq also supports HTTP commands, allowing access to more web applications such as IFTTT Webhooks.
EasyIoT is a free educational IoT platform that allows you to exchange and visualize data. You can access EasyIoT from a smartphone web browser or similar.
EasyIoT works similar to the micro:bit radio communication. All the micro:bits and your smart devices under the same topic will receive the message published to this topic. Meanwhile, the message will be saved in the cloud for further analysis.
