How to participate: submit any project that is involves Xhouse. It can be a light set controlled by iphone or something much more exciting! There will be one grand prize for the most voted project owner!

So show us what you can do with the App or even do something further! As long as you're making something, we’d love to see it. 

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from all over the world. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), July 1, 2013. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, July 31, 2013

To make it more approachable and more accessible for Arduino platforms, we are also offering a 50% cut on the XBoard Relay module! Now get Xboard Relay at $17.00. I’m not kidding. So, get right onto your projects and unleash your ideas!

On Xhouse:


The era of Internet of Things (IOT) has arrived. Objects are now embedded with sensors and are gaining the ability to communicate. But for makers and tinkerers, there is way more to do with them. Crafted by DFRobot team, Xhouse is a one-of-a-kind app designed to facilitate DIYers, Arduino enthusiasts and home automation makers with their fascinating project ideas. 

This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad.


All that, plus updates with additional features & enhancements - MANY NEW FEATURES AND TOOLS are being added :) For now, if you'd like to support our developer check out the app and our forum. You can find and watch the video and tutorials below about Xhouse, also check out the screen shots!

With Xboard Relay, you can not only monitor data through internet, but also control it through internet. It combines an Atmega 32u4 microprocessor and wiz5100 chip which is fully compatible with Arduino Lendardo and Ethernet library; the build-in Xbee socket and 2 Relays allows an easy play sensoring and controlling over internet. 

( What’s different from the previous X-board: no programming adapter required. All you need is a micro usb cable to upload sketch.)
