WEEKLY NEW PRODUCTS RELEASE: Make A Plant Growing System Yourself!

Hello Everybody! There are a lot of great products released in Seeed this week, we’re so proud to introduce them to you. So come on and check out what’s brand new this week!

1) Grove Smart Plant Care Kit for Arduino

Many electronics beginners who are getting started with Arduino and love planting would start their first project of making a plant growing system. Here we provide one-stop solution to build up your own plant care system. The functional kit can detect the temperature, soil moisture, and sunlight intensity as well as automatically water the plant. Best choice for beginners!


2) Grove Starter Kit for BeagleBone Green

Lots of people love the BeagleBone Green (BBG) , it is a joint effort by BeagleBoard.org and SeeedStudio. It has included 2 Grove connectors, making it easier to connect to the large family of Grove sensors. This starter kit for you to hook up quickly with the new BeagleBone Green (BBG). It contains 10 Grove modules and we provide 3 step-by-step projects for you to get started quickly with all modules.


3) Particle Photon

The Internet of Things (IoT) projects are so hot those days! Here comes this tiny Wi-Fi development kit for creating connected projects and products for your IoT projects. Easy to use, powerful and connected to the cloud, it combines a powerful ARM Cortex M3 microcontroller with a Broadcom Wi-Fi chip in a tiny thumbnail-size module called the P0 (P-Zero). Best choice for your to get started quickly with IoT.


4)  96Boards UART

This adapter is a USB to UART interface to be used with any base board compatible with the 96Boards Consumer Edition or Enterprise Edition specifications. It makes it easy to connect your PC to the serial console on the 96Boards low-speed expansion connector, without worrying about pinout or level shifting for 1.8V IO. It also provides remote control of the power button and reset signals so that the base board can be completely controlled over a single USB cable.


5)  SIM808 GSM/GPRS + GPS Module

It is a complete Quad-Band GSM/GPRS module which combines GPS technology for satellite navigation. The compact design which integrated GPRS and GPS in a SMT package will significantly save both time and costs for customers to develop GPS enabled applications. Featuring an industry-standard interface and GPS function, it allows variable assets to be tracked seamlessly at any location and anytime with signal coverage.


6) SIM808 Shield – GSM/GPRS + GPS

This is an Arduino compatible shield that based on SIM808 module, it offers 2G GSM and GPRS data along with GPS technology for satellite navigation. It can do a lot of things:receive GPS data and A-GPS data, send and receive SMS messages, send and receive GPRS data (TCP/IP, HTTP, etc.), make and receive phone calls (External microphone and speaker is required) and so on.


7)  WT8266-S1 FCC/CE/RoHS/ Wi-Fi Module based on ESP8266

Great module to get started with your IoT application. It is a low consumption, high performance embedded Wi-Fi network control module designed by Wireless-Tag. The module supports standard IEEE802.11 b / g / n protocol, a complete TCP / IP protocol stack. It can meet the IoT application requirements in smart power grids, building automation, security and protection, smart home, remote health care etc.


8) Logic DC Jack v1.0

A great product in logic applications, build with AND and NOT functions, which you can change the level of output via logic principles. Also with a switch for changing logic between AND and NOT, you can use one of functions easily. Great part is that it can provide two logic inputs at most and let you to accomplish some simple even complicated logic applications, and you can use this logic module with some Grove products easily in a tiny shape without huge mainboard.
