Meet the kit that will take your home to the 21st century. It can turn any object into an internet-connected device. Automate your curtains to open at sunrise. Make a remote controlled pet feeder. It’s the easiest way to Snap the Internet to Anything.
A cloud-connected circuit that automatically opens up your curtains and plays a wake up sound every morning at sunrise (or other time of your choosing).Using IFTTT we can send a trigger signal through the cloudBit at a scheduled time every day. This signal goes down both wires of the Split Module. On one end it causes the servo to pull the pin that is holding up a counterweight. When the pin is pulled, the weight falls, pulling the cord that opens the curtains. On the other end of the split, the trigger signal causes the mp3 players to start playing a sound file. This file is played through the speaker, which is hooked up to an old radio horn for amplification and general awesomeness.
When away, make sure your pet [fish, cat, dog] never goes hungry with this WiFi-activated feeder/treat dispenser. You can either feed your pet remotely by pressing the button in Cloud Control (on your phone or computer) or you can set up an automated feeding schedule through IFTTT (If this then that). IFTTT is a service that lets you connect to different web apps through simple conditional statements.How it works:Any time the feeder receives a signal through the cloudBit, the servo is activated. A food container [with a small hole in its side] is attached to the servo. When the servo turns, a few pellets/kibble/treats drop out of the container and into a bowl. You can adjust the hole and size of the container accordingly depending on whether you are feeding a cat, dog, or fish.You can activate the servo remotely in a couple different ways. You can either use the littleBits button in Cloud Control to send a single pulse to the cloudBit, activating the servo. Or, you could use an IFTTT channel, like Date Time to automate the feeding at times you set.
Turn on a lamp [or any other appliance that plugs into the wall] anytime from anywhere. Arriving home late to a dark apartment or just sitting on the couch and feeling lazy? Simply use your phone to remotely turn a lamp on or off.How it works:When you press the button in Cloud Control [on your phone or computer], a signal is sent to the cloudBit, which triggers the IR transmitter. The IR transmitter sends a blast of infrared light which is picked up by the infrared sensor on the AC switch. Upon receiving an IR signal, the AC switch toggles any device that is plugged into it on or off. The bright LED acts as a visual indicator that your circuit triggered.
