Ninja Block

Ninja Blocks is a  device that connects things to the web without the need for any programming experience.

The main device is a little open-sourced hardware device based on a small Linux computer, that connects to your WiFi and one or more sensors around your home. It features a little “hack me” tag with which you can open the box and augment the hardware according to your own ideas.

Currently there are sensors for temperature, motion, humidity, doors/windows as well as a wireless doorbell and remote switchable buttons.

 

The company offers a cloud based platform where you can easily define rules and alerts and a few apps for the most common use cases. An API enables you to create your own apps, or integrate Ninja Blocks and it’s connected devices into your own system.
