GrovePi is a hardware system that helps you connect, program, and control sensors to build your own smart devices. It is built to work with all versions of the Raspberry Pi, a very powerful, yet small computer board about the size of a credit card. Learn more about it on the GrovePi product page.
The GrovePi board connects to the Raspberry Pi to the Grove Sensor System and is a Raspberry Pi Internet of Things Kit. The kit allows you to easily connect hundreds of sensors to the Raspberry Pi. Simply connect a cable from the GrovePi to your sensor, download our software examples, and write programs on your Raspberry Pi computer to control and automate any device.
