Internet of Things(IOT) Starter Kit on Raspberry Pi

Internet of Things or IOT is a very popular topic in today’s world. Though IOT technology, people can control almost everything remotely through browser or cellphone app and greatly improve our productivity and life quality.

To help beginners to understand what is Internet Of Things. Our team, in partner with, designed this IOT starter kit which can give some hands-on experience on IOT technology and DIY some simple but useful project for fun. For example, you can get your home temperature and humidity in your web browser, control a servo motor or light up a LED with a cell phone app and many many.

Steps to run IOT project with our kit
Step 1: Register a Free account in

Step 2: install smartphone app
Download myDevices Cayenne Smartphone App from Apple Store or Google Play

Step 3: install client software on pi
Make sure Raspbian OS is freshly installed in your Raspberry Pi and Internet is connected to Pi,
then install Cayenne client software on Raspberry Pi by typing following two commands in Pi command window:

wget –no-check-certificate

sudo bash -v

Your Pi will download and install some client software, this might take about 5 to 10 minutes depending on your internet connection speed.

Step 4: Begin our first project!
Login to your Cayenne control panel, you should see an Add new button on upper left corner, if you can not see this button, click User menu -> Triggers & Alerts , you will see it.

Click Add new->Device
in Device Category select Sensors->Generic->Digit Input
You will see a View Tutorial link in right side of the page. It will show a simple circuit graph which connects a push button to Pi.

Back to Main Control Panel Page, on Select Raspberry Pi drop-down menu, you should see Raspberry Pi option(If you can not see any Pi option, your client software installation should have some problem or your internet connection is broken), select that default Pi option.

select the default channel and GPIO as per Tutorial.

Finally push the Button Switch on circuit, you will see you control panel button graph color changes.
