Make: Sensors
Projects and Experiments to Measure the World
Learn more

We live in a world where plants tweet, thermostats sense your presence, and lighting can sense your mood. Turning your home into a "smart home" is easier than ever. All you really need is a sensor, an actuator, and a programmable controller to run the show.

Make: Sensors shows you how to measure real-life phenomena like light, distance, smoke, sound, and movement. You'll learn how to translate sensor readings into actions with projects. Plus, Chapters 1 and 2 offer detailed overviews of Raspberry Pi and Arduino so you have the information you need to pick the right microcontroller for the job. 

Make: Arduino Bots and Gadgets

Make: Arduino Bots and Gadgets teaches how to build robots and electronic projects with easy-to-follow instructions. In Chapter Seven you'll learn how to make a smart home remote.

Atmospheric Monitoring with Arduino

Atmospheric Monitoring with Arduino provides succinct tutorials, illustrations, and clear step-by-step instructions. Create gadgets for examining the quality of our atmosphere with Arduino and inexpensive sensors.

Building Wireless Sensor Networks

Building Wireless Sensor Networks demonstrates how to build a radio network with XBees cheaply and quickly that can deliver remotely sensed data.

Environmental Monitoring with Arduino

Environmental Monitoring with Arduino shows you how to use Arduino to create gadgets for measuring noise, weather, radiation, water purity, and more.
