Linkit Smart 7688 Duo is yet another open source OpenWRT Linux-based Hardware Development Kit. It comes with inbuilt WiFi and is compatible with Arduino Yún sketches. Its platform is powered by Mediatek’s MT7688 [MPU] and Atmega32u4 [MCU]. The board provides a rich set of hardware interfaces including GPIO, UART, I2C and others, and connectivity through USB […]
Continuing from Part 1 where we setup Alexa voice service with the Raspberry Pi, this post will conclude and demonstrate the home automation system that we set out to build. So let’s check out the nitty gritty of building the final solution using Amazon Alexa.
Ever imagined building a hands-free speaker that you can control with your voice. Wouldn’t it be even better if we could also control home appliances this way? In this blog series, let’s see how to build a voice controlled home automation system using Amazon Alexa and Raspberry Pi. I will show you how we can […]
For kickstarting any IoT project, the basic requirement is a full featured development kit and a development environment. Linkit One is one of the open source high performance prototyping HDK (Hardware Development Kit) from Mediatek which has rich peripherals and interfaces like WIFI, BLE, GPS, GSM etc., in a single board which enables developers to […]
