    How is the Oplà IoT Kit content structured?

    The Oplà IoT Kit is divided into two ‘getting to know’ activities to provide you with the basics, plu eight step-by-step, projects ready to assemble. Each project includes goals, an intro to the components, and instructions with illustrations and videos to guide you through the assembly step-by-step. the hardware, configure the IoT Cloud and gradually build the code.


    Who can use the kit?

    This kit comes with complete step by step assembly instructions, hence only basic DIY experience is necessary. More advanced users can use the kit to customize and hack their smart applications and devices, providing complete control of the processes.

    What languages does the online platform support?

    The Oplà IoT Kit is currently available in English.

    What application can you build with the Oplà IoT Kit cover?

    The Oplà IoT Kit enables the users to build 8 different applications:

    • Remote Controlled Lights
    • Personal Weather Station
    • Home Security Alarm
    • Solar System Tracker
    • Inventory Control
    • Smart Garden
    • Thermostat Control
    • Thinking About You
    Can I control multiple applications at the same time?

    The eight Oplà projects are designed to be standalone. To control more than one application at the same time requires 2 or more kits.

    What operating system is required?

    Windows 7 or higher, Linux, or Mac OS.

    What are the minimum requirements for using the kit?

    To assemble the projects and configure the device, you will need a computer with an internet connection.
