How the CloudBit Works

Cb assets circuit 1

INPUT: From Bit to Web

The cloudBit acts as an input by receiving signal from your littleBits circuit and sending it to the internet. This means you can make a smart doorbell that tweets at you when someone pushes a littleBits button, or a burglar alarm to send you a text message if someone activates the littleBits sound trigger.

OUTPUT: From Web to Bit

The cloudBit also acts as an output by sending signal from an event on the internet to your littleBits circuit. This would be like turning a motor to release a treat for your cat if a certain Instagram hashtag is used, or flashing an LED when you get an email from a VIP.

Cloud Control App

Our mobile dashboard acts as a remote control AND readout. This means you can turn on your circuit with a push of a button, and receive readings from your circuit.

If This Then That

We've partnered with IFTTT to make it super easy to control web applications like Facebook and Twitter, or communicate via sms and gmail - all without writing a single line of code.
