Cyber Monday IoT Hobby Kit

If you have been wanting to dive into the world of Internet of Things (IoT) but didn't know where to start, this kit will certainly get your feet wet. By using the popular Arduino development environment to program the included ESP8266 Thing Dev board, you will learn how to post temperature and humidity data to the open source ThingSpeak data channel. The other exercises show you how to send yourself emails or text messages with the push of a (physical) button and, for the coup de grâce, remotely control 120 V home or office appliances from anywhere in the world. No soldering required!

    This kit is priceless! No, really, there's no price listed. How much?

      There is no price listed because it is technically not for sale yet. We did list the prices on the blog post yesterday as well as the rest of the sale information. FYI it will be $49.95 when it is available.

Great for IoT projects

The integrated package ESP8266 Thing Dev works great with the Arduino IDE. The kit package is all that is needed to get started. The package size, the ability to interface WI-FI will allow for a number of versatile applications.
