Particle Pi Starter Kit with Raspberry Pi 3

The Raspberry Pi 3 is the world's most popular low-cost computer, and a powerful development tool for building connected projects. Now, you can connect a Pi to the Particle Cloud with this Particle Pi Starter Kit. 

Maybe you've use Raspberry Pis and you remember when it took complicated tooling, setup, or scripting to do simple projects like toggling a pin, blinking an LED, or reading a sensor value. Or maybe you love your Photon but you really wish that you could do some crazy camera or neopixel stuff. Guess what, we fixed all your problems. 

- Simple Arduino Code: Use the Particle Web IDE to program your Pi with Wiring.

- Over-the-Air Updates: Reprogram code running on your Pis one at a time or as a fleet in the Console/Web IDE.

- Batch Script Execution: Remotely execute customized scripts on groups of Raspberry Pis using the exec command.

- Remote Data Collection: Collect and publish data to the Particle Cloud, or store it locally by logging it on your Pi.

Use the included remote control and Particle connection to send a tweet, access IFTTT, or trigger an action over the web. When you aren’t within remote range, remote into your Pi through the Particle Cloud and flip a light switch, turn off a circuit, or monitor a security camera.

This kit ships in 2 to 4 weeks! To use this kit, visit the Particle Pi beta signup page at https://particle.io/particle-pi. Purchase of this kit will guarantee a spot in the beta!
