Arduino has a large number of compatible components, and also development kits with everything you need to get started or for somewhat more advanced DIY projects. But from now on, makers also have a new kit aimed at developing IoT projects. This way you will have everything you need to start in the world of the Internet of Things.
It has a good repertoire of elements that will fascinate you, and that are supreme practical for all those connected applications and the smart home ...
Everything you need to know about the Arduino Oplà kit
This new project for the Internet of Things, or IoT, is the new thing for Arduino. An official kit released under the name Arduino Oplà IoT Kit and with a set of pieces that will allow you to create up to 8 different applications in this field, with detailed tutorials for you to start creating and that you can get from the official website from Arduino.
The projects what can you create Only with this kit they go from a simple remote control for the house lights, to the intelligent management of the entire irrigation system of a garden, through others such as making inventories and controlling other intelligent systems, security, etc.
El price is $ 99 and is already available from Arduino official website, at the moment it cannot be found elsewhere. In exchange for that amount, you will get, in addition to the kit itself, also a 12-month subscription to Arduino Create Maker Plan. That gives access to the Arduino IoT Cloud, allowing users to store sketches in the cloud, increase the number of features, and get support for third-party boards and LoRa devices, as well as unlimited builds.
After 12 months, users who are still interested in continuing with the services, will have to renew the subscription for $ 5.99 per month (If you don't deactivate it, they will charge you automatically).
As for the the components of the Arduino Oplà IoT Kit, you have the following elements:
- Main base with color LCD screen, various types of sensors, capacitive controller, RGB LEDs, and other components and connectors.
- It also includes a WiFi board to add wireless connectivity to your projects.
- More sensors, plastic housing, and PnP (Plug & Play) cables. All so that projects can be easily assembled without having to weld anything.
