Sunfounder Sensor Kit (37 different sensor types) now for all nodes available.
Perfekt - our SmartHome has now 5 nodes build with the brand new RedBearDuos and the RBLinks.
The RedBear Duo is a thumb-size development board designed to simplify the process of building Internet of Things (IoT) products. The Duo is software compatible with Broadcom WICED SDK and provides everything you need—Wi-Fi, BLE and a powerful Cloud backend, all in a compact form factor that makes it ideal for your first prototype, a finished product, and everything in between. The Duo contains both Wi-Fi and BLE capabilities. This means your project can communicate locally with Bluetooth enabled devices and can also connect to your local Wi-Fi network to interact with anything else on the web. The Duo is built around the Broadcom BCM43438, a Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n plus Bluetooth 4.1 (Dual Mode) combined chipset. They share the same 2.4GHz antenna and can run at the same time. This gives you the flexibility to utilize the most suitable wireless technology(s) for your project.
So far - ELEKTRA has now a second speech recognizer letting you use full-sentence voice commands.
MOVI™ is an easy to use speech recognizer and voice synthesizer. It is used with an Arduino board and provides an alternative to buttons, remote controls, or cell phones by letting you use full-sentence voice commands for tasks such as turning devices on and off, entering alarm codes, and carrying on programmed conversations with projects. It is programmed directly from the Arduino IDE.

Blynk is a Platform with iOS and Android apps to control Arduino, Raspberry Pi and the likes over the Internet. It's a digital dashboard where you can build a graphic interface for your project by simply dragging and dropping widgets. It's really simple to set everything up and you'll start tinkering in less than 5 mins.
Particle Sensor Nodes can communicate via Blynk app now with the Smart Home - control and receive data - ditto the Arduino Gateway.
