Getting started

Well… the first step to start with d-diot is to build your own hub.

At the moment this step requires a discrete amount of your time, because a pre-soldered board is not yet available, but the building process is part of the fun and following the steps of the guides it is not a so difficult task!

The Hub v.1.0 and v.2.0 are a combination of a Raspberry Pi and an expansion board (d-diot board), while the hub v.3.0 is a wifi multi-gateway (IR, 433 Mhz, Mysensors) based on ESP8266 and ESP32 modules, independent from the Raspberry Pi.

The reasons and the advantages of the hub v.3.0 are described in this post.

A series of sensors and actuators, all 3d printable, are part of the d-diot project, visit the dedicated page to know more.

Below the links for each category of devices:

The software part is easy, simply download the d-diot image and burn it to an SD card. The d-diot image is required for the hub v.1.0 and v.2.0.
