Microcontrollers (Arduino, Raspberry PI)

 

Microcontrollers are mini-computers that can be integrated into rooms or props in order to initiate actions.

Sensors allow microcontrollers to detect light, humidity, temperature, sound levels, etc.
Microcontrollers can also be used to trigger an electronic effect such as lights, sounds, servo motors, etc.

The trial version includes sample projects for serial and TCP ethernet connections that demonstrate the following:
 - Receiving messages from the server, causing the microcontroller device to perform an action
 - Causing the microcontroller to send a message to the server, triggering a specific script to run

The sample projects are included in the trial version.

If you are considering the use of microcontrollers in your room, please be sure to check out our resources page for more information about microcontroller implementation strategies and 'graceful failure'.
