If you wish you could incorporate the Internet of Things in your own home, but don't necessarily have the skills to go about it, this smart home kit is the answer. From LittleBits, the Smart Home Kit enables anybody to design their own connected home even if they don't know coding. Using your existing appliances, the kit makes the Internet of Things available to those who don't have a programming background but are interested in dabbling in this concept.

Similar to the IFTTT Internet-connected buttons, the LittleBits kit consists of 14 modules and 11 accessories that enable it to automate tasks. Existing appliances and devices can have smart features added onto them, such as sound triggers, IR transmitters, light and temperature sensors. The pieces can also be combined so different elements work together.
