Get your IoT project started on our Android app! Create a huge range of IoT products, from smart home products to commercial sensor networks. Easily connect your Photon, Electron, or compound device to the Particle Cloud.
The Particle Android app will take you through the entire set-up process step by step until the LED on your board is breathing cyan - indicating it's connected and ready to be programmed!
Our IoT hardware:
The Photon is the hardware solution for Wi-Fi connected products or projects.
The Electron is a cellular-connected board.
They are both supported by a comprehensive set of development tools, libraries, and cloud applications so you can focus on making your project work. The Particle Android app also supports the Raspberry Pi running Particle firmware. We also connect to connected microcontrollers from our partners like Bluz, Redbear Duo, and Digistump Oak.
Tinker, a quick start sandbox will help you get your prototype up and running in minutes. Tinker exposes basic pin functions through our API, allowing you to read sensor data and blink LEDs by just tapping a pin name on screen - not a single line of code needed. It provides an intuitive environment for tinkering and prototyping even if it is the first piece of programmable hardware you've ever picked up!
The device inspector goes further, allowing you to call functions and see the event stream off of your devices. Device Inspector allows you to dive deeper into your devices for advanced on-the-go debugging: Get detailed device information, read variables, call functions, and see your device event stream. Use Tinker and Device Inspector to interact with and debug your devices.
