GrovePi+ Plug-n-Play IoT Platform

GrovePi_Kit_Parts_3Traditionally building Internet of Things (IoT) devices using a platform such as the Raspberry Pi required you to know a little about electronics. You needed to either solder or use a breadboard to connect sensors or servos or whatever to the Raspberry Pi header / GPIO pins correctly. Plus you needed to know when to use a resistor or other component appropriately. The GrovePi+ from Dexter Industries provides a really easy to use Plug-n-Play platform for building IoT devices such as home automation, monitoring or any other Internet of Things scenario!

Now, the add-on device market for Raspberry Pi with Windows IoT Core has remained somewhat limited, as Windows IoT Core is still fairly new. This has meant wiring up servos, sensors and other things has been difficult for the average developer. With the introduction of the new Microsoft IoT Grove Kit you can now easily plugin servos, sensors, etc. with a single plug that really stream lines the prototyping process! Read More
