I saw a blog post from SparkFun announcing their, "Cyber Monday IoT Hobby Kit". The kit is based on the ESP8266 board and includes some other parts to build some connected projects. They also published tutorials that use ThingSpeak that go along with the kit. If you have all of the parts in the kit, you can build the sample projects with the code on GitHub.

If you have been wanting to dive into the world of Internet of Things (IoT) but didn’t know where to start, this kit will certainly get your feet wet. By using the popular Arduino development environment to program the included ESP8266 Thing Dev board, you will learn how to post temperature and humidity data to the open source ThingSpeak data channel. The other exercises show you how to send yourself emails or text messages with the push of a (physical) button and, for the coup de grâce, remotely control 120 V home or office appliances from anywhere in the world. No soldering required!

Kit Includes:

  • 1x ESP8266 Thing - Dev Board
  • 1x Jumper Wires - Connected 6in. (M/M, 20 pack)
  • 1x Humidity and Temperature Sensor - RHT03
  • 1x Breadboard - Self-Adhesive (White)
  • 1x Resistor 10K Ohm 1/6th Watt PTH - 20 pack
  • 1x USB microB Cable - 6 Foot
  • 1x PowerSwitch Tail II
  • 1x SparkFun Mini Screwdriver
  • 3x Momentary Pushbutton Switch - 12mm Square
  • 1x Wall Charger - 5V USB (1A)
