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!
