Explore IoT with the BBC micro:bit

The Internet of Things is simply “A network of Internet connected objects able to collect and exchange data.” It is commonly abbreviated as IoT or Internet Of Things. To put it in a simple way, you have “things” or sensors that sense and collect data (by interacting with the real world) and send it (data) to the internet. The Internet of things (IoT) is the extension of Internet connectivity into physical devices and everyday objects. Embedded with electronics, Internet connectivity, and other forms of hardware (such as sensors), these devices can communicate and interact with others over the Internet, and they can be remotely monitored and controlled.

Keen to learn more about IoT (Internet of Things) then come on in and check out the newly launched Elecfreaks Smart Science IoT (Internet Of Things) kit. The Elecfreaks smart science IoT kit is designed to help you get started with exploring the world of electronics with a focus on Internet Of Things (IoT).

Smart Science IoT kit

The Smart Science IoT kit comes with an embedded ESP IoT chip in it which gives it the power to connect up to the internet. With the Elecfreaks Smart Science IoT kit you will be able to interact with the real world using sensors, capture data from those sensors, upload the data to various online IoT platforms and then visualize that data in real time. The Elecfreaks Smart Science IoT kit is a great way to get kids of all ages to start exploring the world of electronics while learning the fundamentals of data collection, data visualization, managing IoT data on SaaS platforms, etc.

The definition of the Internet of things has evolved due to convergence of multiple technologies, real-time analytics, machine learning, commodity sensors, and embedded systems. Traditional fields of embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, control systems, automation (including home and building automation), and others all contribute to enabling the Internet of things. In the consumer market, IoT technology is most synonymous with products pertaining to the concept of the “smart home”, covering devices and appliances (such as lighting fixtures, thermostats, home security systems and cameras, and other home appliances) that support one or more common ecosystems, and can be controlled via devices associated with that ecosystem, such as smartphones and smart speakers.  Get started with your own STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning journey using the Elecfreaks Smart Home kit.

Sensors, Octopus breakout board, 11 sensors, ESP for internet connectivity, etc.

The Elecfreaks smart home kit for BBC micro:it comes packed with ~11 easy to use sensors (OLED screen, noise sensor, light sensor, relay sensor, soil moisture sensor, water level sensor, dust sensor, etc.) and includes the Electrofreaks Octopus micro:bit breakout board. The Electrofreaks Octopus micro:bit breakout board is specially designed for use with the Electrofreaks Octopus sensors and makes it really easy to interface with the different electronic bits i.e. sensors, etc. included in the smart home kit. The smart science IoT kit for the BBC micro:bit offers a great opportunity to explore the world of electronics using the BBC micro:bit and learn more about IoT. Interact with the real world through the various sensors,  create innovative projects, learn how to program the micro:bit to read data from the sensors and perform certain actions. With the ~11 sensors you will challenge yourself in many different ways, gain experience working with each of the electronic components and learn concepts around Smart Home, IoT (Internet Of Things) and Home Automation.  The smart home kit for the BBC micro:bit is a great way to dive into the awesome world of electronics and get started with your own STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning journey.
