LittleBits introduces Internet of Things enabled Smart Home Kit


The Internet of Things (or connected home) is pretty sweet. You can turn on lights from the couch or across the country. You can start a delicious stew in a crook pot on your way home. All of which are great, as long as you buy the products that actually do those things. So if you want to do something out of the ordinary, there’s littleBits.

The company launched its cloudBit device back in July to let users add virtually anything to their connected home via the littleBits hardware and the companion app. Today it’s introducing its Smart Home kit with 14 bits including the cloudBit, and five new bits including an MP3 player, number displaying bit, threshold, temperature sensors and IR transmitter. It also ships with an AC switch.

The littleBits Smart Home Kit is on sale now for $249.
