This week Tinkerforge has announced the launch of a new home automation DIY kit that has been created to enable almost anyone to start controlling power sockets, light fittings and other home appliances from a smartphone.
The new home automation Internet of Things Starter Kit supports 433MHz actuators and is equipped with an external antenna providing a large range of connectivity, all being controlled by the Internet of Things (iot) remote webpage.
Tinkerforge explains a little more: “The Internet of Things is an evolution of the Internet. It interconnects not only human and computer as before but also physical objects (things).
With the kit nothing stands in the way of turning your coffee maker on while you are heading home or to dim your living room illumination with your own cloud or with a Raspberry Pi. The website iot gives you direct access to wireless actuators from any web-enabled device.”
For full details and technical specifications of the new Internet of Things Starter Kit jump over to the Tinkerforge website for more information and to purchase it at a special price of just €49.99. Regular price €64.99. If you are thinking of setting up a home automation system you might be interested in our Home Automation Hubs and Systems Guide.
