Before you can use Digi-Key IoT Studio, you'll need to install two applications: DK IoT Studio Mobile and IoT Agent. 

Install DK IoT Studio Mobile App

The Digi-Key IoT Studio app is an app which works with microcontrollers such as the Adafruit Feather ESP32 Huzzah and the Digi-Key IoT Platform. It lets you monitor your connected projects from your phone or tablet.

Install IoT Agent

You'll need the IoT Agent to program your HUZZAH32 from Digi-Key IoT Studio. The IoT Agent is a local application that's used to program hardware from your web browser. It runs on every major desktop operating system: 

If you encounter an issue with running the IoT Agent, post up on the Digi-Key Tech Forum for support.

Creating a Digi-Key IoT Studio Project

Once you installed both the Digi-Key IoT Mobile App and IoT Agent, navigate to the Digi-Key IoT Studio website. You'll be prompted to log in with your Digi-Key account, or create one if you haven't yet.

You'll be brought to the Studio Projects screen. From the Studio Projects screen, create a new project by clicking the + button.

You'll be creating a project using the Adafruit HUZZAH32 board. Select the Huzzah32 and name the project IoT Home.

Once the project is created successfully, you'll be brought to the Embedded Workspace for your project. 

The embedded workspace in Digi-Key IoT Studio Project allows you to build embedded firmware. You'll be using this workspace to program your HUZZAH32. 

Let's get started by building a project which can turn on or off the smart home's LEDs from the mobile app.
