Pretty much everyone that knows me knows that I am huge into the Internet of Things (IoT). Everyday I build something new / different for IoT and my home automation system. Recently I have been getting more and more requests from people asking to see some of the sensors and other devices I use in my IoT projects. So, today I decided to take some pictures of many of the sensors in my collection (in their raw form). I finally got tired of sorting sensors and taking pictures. So, this list isn’t even close to the complete size of my collection. It is just a taste of some of the things I have.

I’m not going to give details here about what everything is. But, if you’re interested to know more about anything, feel free to ask in the comments below. Also, you can click on any picture to enlarge it.

1. Misc. sensors.
