Been a while heh?
So I’ve been fairly occupied in the last month, with work and school starting. But one thing I had the chance to work on is the latest toy from Particle: The Photon. Though the performance are not incredible, for the price, it’s incredible. This little thing is really nice, and you flash it over the air. Actually, this thing stays connected on the internet and you can interact with it from anywhere, as long as you have access to the particle dashboard and services. I really suggest that you guys try it.
So what did I do with it?
Well as some of you know, I’ve been working on home automation devices for the past few month and we thought that this little thing could really help. Attaching a Zigbee radio to this thing, I was able to set up a whole network and control system for the Zigbee devices. And what is really nice is the fact that it’s really lightweight and small. It doesn’t take any place at all and only require a small micro-usb connection to power up.
So yeah, try it!
