Gumstix announced the release of the Gumstix RoomSense passive-IR board. Designed for the IoT market, this occupancy and air sensor microcontroller board uses a passive IR motion detector, and temperature, humidity and barometric sensors to monitor a room's conditions and occupancy.

The Microchip ATSAMW25, the same microcontroller-plus-wifi found in the Arduino MKR1000, provides a SAMD21 ARM Cortex-M0+ MCU and WiFi connectivity. It integrates easily with cloud IoT platforms such as MyDevices Cayenne and can be plugged in to any powered USB port to deliver occupancy, temperature, humidity and barometric pressure to home automation systems. Pre-flashed with the Arduino bootloader, the RoomSense ($86.00) is easily deployable by developers at all levels seeking a rapid path from design to market.

The RoomSense board design is freely available and has been shared in the Geppetto Design Library to allow designers to copy and customize specifications online to suit specific needs. Changing processors or adding GPS and sensors can be done in minutes. Each saved Geppetto design is supported with free documentation and board software package support with the recently added AutoDoc and AutoBSP Geppetto design tools.

Geppetto D2O, is a free online design and production tool for creating custom expansion boards. A hardware design can be completed in hours, and ready to ship in fifteen business days. As they design, users can compare alternatives for features and costs, create multiple projects, and go straight from a design to an order in one session. Gumstix engineers verify all Geppetto-manufactured devices before shipping. Gumstix products and quantity discounts are available at the Gumstix online store.
