Ever wanted to learn electronics but didn't know where to start?
Are you curious to create interactive projects with sensors found commonly around you (home, smartphones, office, car, etc)?
Are you interested in creating your own "Internet of Things" smart sensing devices?
Look no further! At OSEPP, we developed the 101 Sensor Kit to help you quickly and easily create electronics projects using a range of different sensors.
What is the 101 Sensor Kit?
The 101 sensor kit is a collection of common sensors you can find around your environment. Wether its the light sensors in your smartphones/laptops, the motion sensors found to control patio lighting or smoke alarm sensors in your home, our kit helps you understand these common sensors that encompass our lives. This kit initiates the first steps in creating smart sensing devices for the internet of things, or whatever you can dream up!
We understand the challenge of getting started with electronics, so we have created a detailed instructional booklet with accompanying lessons and quick connect sensor modules. The 101 Sensor Kit will have you up and running in minutes with an array of smart sensing projects. No prior electronics knowledge required.
By the end of the 101 Sensor Kit, you will have a strong foundation of understanding how to incorporate a large range of sensors for any project you can think up!
*Note - this kit does not show you how to connect sensors wirelessly to the web. you would need to purchase external components.
- No soldering or breadboards!
- Easy plug and play quick connectors
- advanced wireless capabilities (wireless parts no included)
- Create advanced sensor systems in minutes
- over 14 unique sensor modules
- 15 detailed lessons with visual diagrams
- Kickstarter exclusive specials*
- Example booklet with detailed wiring diagrams
- Lesson 1 - LEDs and Buttons learn how to control LEDs with push Buttons
- Lesson 2 - Musical Buzzer Learn how to make a musical buzzer with your own musical notes.
- Lesson 3 - Potentiometer control the pitch of the musical buzzer and adjust the brightness of an led.
- Lesson 4 - Fan Motor adjust the direction and speed of a motor with a potentiometer knob and button.
- Lesson 5 - Ping Sensor change direction of a motor when you are within proximity of the motor using the ping sensor.
- Lesson 6 - Reed Switch turn an LED on and off based on the state of a reed switch.
- Lesson 7 - PIR sensor construct a smart motion sensing system that turns on an led based on movement.
- Lesson 8 - Flame Sensor create a smoke / fire alarm with the flame sensor.
- Lesson 9 - Temperature Sensor measure the temperature around you with the temperature sensor.
- Lesson 10 -Light Sensor detect the light surrounding you with the light sensor.
- Lesson 11 -Sound Sensor adjust the brightness of an led based on the ambient nose around you with the sound sensor.
- Lesson 13 - 4-digit touch sensor create a security access keypad with the 4 digit touch sensor.
- Lesson 14 - Environmental Monitor create an environmentally aware system with the sensors you have previously used
- Lesson 15 - Security System create a smart security system with sensors previously used.
What differentiates this kit from other kits in the market (aside from hardware quality) are the in depth lessons. Below is an actual sample lesson from the booklet.

Who is OSEPP?
We at OSEPP are a group of Arduino enthusiasts passionate about releasing open source hardware and software. We manufacture all of our products ranging from sensor modules, kits, and accessories. We create easy to follow guides accompanied with detailed diagrams for all our products (ages 12+ can assemble). We have been around under a decade, but are growing exponentially.
You can find our products at retailers such as Fry's Electronics, Allied Electronics, MCM Electronics, most HobbyTown locations and Micro Center to name a few (full distributor list here). OSEPP products strive to promote computer literacy across various educational systems and institutions.
We offer technical support on all our products. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org 7 days a week including holidays. We will tend to your issue within the day (usually within the hour! ).
OSEPP products are 100% Arduino compatible. Whether you own a Genduino, an Arduino Mega or any of the large selections of boards on the market, our products are compatible with the open source build standards from the Arduino foundation. This includes any accompanying software.
Arduino is the most popular open source electronics prototyping platform, so we want to continue to support the growing community surrounding it.
Open Source Licensing
All of our products have open source licensing. We abide by all of the various open source licensing in any hardware/software we incorporate. The flexible licensing allows users to modify any of our hardware and software along with understanding the inner workings. We currently supply all source code and schematics for the sensors in our sensor kit on our site, osepp.com.
Why Kickstarter?Kickstarter is an incredible platform not only supporting various projects financially, but also helps test the demand in the market. We felt Kickstarter for us was a way of reaching new users and offer a brand new kit. Kickstarter is a great for market feedback and we want to hear from you so we may optimize our products!
The 101 Sensor Kit is not financially dependent on the Kickstarter campaigns success. The goal of this campaign is to test the demand for this particular type of kit. OSEPP products have been a huge success not just for hobbyists, artists, designers,scientists and engineers, but also within various educational institutions globally.
We hope Kickstarter can be the platform extending the success of our products to educational institutions STEM programs throughout the world.
