Buying an LED light or thermostat for your home is like dipping your toes into the smart home pool. But what if you wanna dive in head first? The Smart Home Kit from littleBits is just what you need to make a sizable splash.

This box of tech tricks can turn any household object into an internet-connected device, letting you control your AC from anywhere in the house, automate your curtains to fly open at sunrise (oh hells no), or construct a remote controlled pet feeder. The kit comes with 14 modules, including the new temperature sensor, MP3 player, and “internet boss,” the cloudBit. The 11 accessories inside include the AC switch which lets you control wall outlets using littleBits circuits. Best of all there’s no special wiring or programming needed—just the internet.
