Automate your own adorable, IoT-enabled papier-mâché house. The small size of this build lets us explore wiring, user interaction, and firmware deployment without having to get a ladder out.
After building this project, you can re-purpose this project for your home or apartment. Adafruit specifically selected components and sensors which are common in real-world IoT projects. You can also go further with this project, adding sensors to monitor different rooms in your house.
Unlike most other IoT platforms, Digi-Key IoT Studio is code-less - all sensor interaction and storage is done automatically by the drag-and-drop IDE. You do not need to install toolchains, code editors or compile any code on your computer! Digi-Key Studio runs in your web browser, handles all aspects of developing an Internet-of-Things project, and even compiles your code remotely.
This high-level integration is possible because IoT Studio has built in support for a range of transport boards, and sensors. Note that not all boards and devices are supported - lucky for us, there are plenty of Adafruit products supported, including some series favorites: the ESP32 Feather and the Analog Devices FeatherWing.
However, instead of just a simple temperature sensor data logger, we’ll make a complete home automation system that you can follow along by picking up this IoT Studio Kit.
Soldering is required to attach headers and wires! You will need some basic hand tools like wire cutters, heat shrink, and soldering iron to build the smart home
