The devices which connect to internet has been shrinking at very fast pace, Now its got to the size which fits on your fingers and can not only connect to the internet but as also do some sensing.
ESP8266 chipset has made waves since it got introduced, Due to its small size and capablities. This is the first generation of IOT technologies which is going to change the way we live.
We use this powerful tiny module to build a complete WeatherStation kit, which collects Temperature, Humidity and Barometer readings. Not only does it collect the data, It stores it in the cloud for you to retrieve it from any device be it your mobile, PC or tablet. Isnt that cool.
With the purchase of the kit we give you a unique key, which is used to provide access to the cloud storage to store it as well as download the data.
You can use this kit for many purposes:
Fig: Electronic Barometer + Temperature + Humidity sensing
Room temperature logging
Home Insulation checks
Industrial data logging
Recording change of weather in your area and publishing it on the web
Add more sensors like power monitoring and make this a multisensor IOT kit
Fig: Build your graphs from the stored CSV data
There is a lot you can do with this powerful combination of low power sensor and cloud access.
The kit comes with complete step by step instructions to buid the kit.
This kit takes measurement of its two precision temperature sensors, and logs the data to a SD card. Both real time readings and stored data can be sent wirelessly to a PC.
How is it useful?
One of the two temperature sensors is located inside the box, and the other one outside on a 1.2 meter cable. By locating the two temperature sensors in two different areas (e.g. indoor and under floor). We can see the temperature variations of the two areas over time. One good use case is to measure how good your home insulation is. Having said that, this kit is designed with DIY in mind. Extra sensors can be added very easily, and soldering is minimum because of the use of the sensor shield. By adding a humidity sensor, light sensor, wind speed sensor etc, this box can be turned into a wireless weather station!
What is included in this kit?
This wirless sensor and data logger kit embodies a few very cool technologies: Real Time Clock, SD Card read/write, Bluetooth and one wire digital temperature sensor. Not only can it be easily turned into a general purpose wireless sensor logger, it also is a fantastic educational kit after all. This kit includes all the neccessary bits to construct a fully working wireless sensor logger, the package includes:
Arduino Mega 2560
Arduino Mega sensor and servo shield
Real Time Clock module (onboard temperature sensor incl.)
SD card module
Kingston SD Card 1 GB
Cable gland x 2
Some wires and accessories

There isn't a cleaner way to control something through the internet than using this WiFi Universal Power Adapter. It's super easy to setup and use. Think off things you can control on/off by your cellphone, or computer , usage of this plug is only limited by your imagination.
Plug in the device you want into this socket and you are free to turn it ON from anywhere with your phone.
The app is designed to allow adding multiple sockets in your house and label them "Kettle", "Lights", "Heater" etc
Effectively with this device you have the control of you entire home right in your pocket.

Android is a great platform to start building your apps, but its not the simplest to start with. For that reason we at hobbyist have built a kit which will take you through the process of building an App step by step. We start with the bare basics and eventually take you into building an app which does some fancyhome automation for you.
It covers the basics of app development and then delves into using bluetooth wireless to talk to Arduino platform. This paves way for reading remote sensor data from the Android tablet and use it as a dashboard for home automation and doing remote robot control.
What you can accomplish with this kit :
Learn the basics of Android App development
Simple Hello World App
Make the app talk to an Arduino
- Then read the moisture and temp of your garden
Read data from Arduino and turn ON devices with touch of a button.
- Now you can turn on Lamps, Tv's, Heaters right from the app
Send a message wirelessly to an OLED display via the app
- Make this your message board & leave messages to family/flatmates

Want to wirelessly control a Mars rover from your laptop?
You are in the right place, this kit does exactly that. 10 minutes is what it takes to wire up the electronics, it doesn't even need soldering. For people who know programming, this kit is more than a remote control robot.
You can write program on your pc to communicate with the robot such as scheduling tasks and receiving sensor data (e.g. video, image, switch, temperature, light etc) from the robot. You can even control the robot on the internet!! The ways it can be used are endless...
This kit includes
Arduino Duemilanove 2009
4-way stripped wires and approx. 10 breadboard wires
All you need to add is 6 AA batteries, and a laptop with Bluetooth connectivity.
The Mars rover platform is a robust and easily adjustable track drive chassis that is perfect for robotics hobbyists. It has two DC motor built-in, and it's already assembled. A 6-slot battery case is also included. The height of the track wheels are manually adjustable.
Tutorials provided at the bottom of this page show you how to assemble it, and the available open source code demonstrates how to control the rover on the keyboard. 'e', 'c', 's', 'f', 'd' keys command the robot to go forward, backward, left, right and stop.
