Raspberry Pi enthusiasts looking for an easy way to create industrial or home automation systems using the Internet of Things, may be interested in a new piece of hardware launched via Kickstarter in the form of the Pi-oT IoT Module for Raspberry Pi.
The IoT module has been specifically created to easily interface with the Raspberry Pi’s 40 pin GPIO connector offering a robust system capable of controlling 5 on board relays via the open source MCP3008/3208 python library to read the analog inputs.
“The IoT Module for Raspberry Pi by Pi-oT started out as a B2B prototype. Our team developed a PC based IoT module for industrial settings and we found ourselves using Raspberry Pi’s frequently for prototyping. The only problem with using the Raspberry Pi for industrial settings is the auxillary hardware is all Chinese hobby grade components.”
Earlybird pledges are available from $35 or £29 and worldwide shipping is expected to take place during October 2019. For full specifications jump over to the official Kickstarter project page by following the link below.
