4+ Raspberry Pi IoT Projects
Raspberry Pi IoT projects are a great way to get yourself deep into the world of the internet of things. If you love data, automating things, and just seeing cool stuff then you’re going to love IoT.
There are some great software packages such as cayenne to help speed up how fast you can build IoT enabled devices. Some of these are open source whilst others are closed source. You could build your own if you have the patience, time and skill.
For anyone who is wondering what IoT is then to put it simply, it basically refers to devices that can collect and communicate data between each other. This could be sensors, actuators, electronics and so much more. Of course, there is much more it then that but that’s the basic idea.
We’re working on bringing you more and more Raspberry Pi IoT projects so be sure to stay tuned. You can sign up to the mailing list or/and simply follow us on social to stay up to date on all the latest tutorials.
