DaVinci our Dragon was due for a software upgrade to his Vivarium’s Controller. I decided to migrate from the good ole traditional ‘full on’ Arduino logic that has been chugging away quite reliably for the past year, to a ST_Anything SmartThings integration so I could leverage the automation and remote accessibility that environment inherently provides. The cool thing is the fact that the existing design/architecture of DaVinci’s ESP8266 ESP12 NodeMCU 0.9 controller was 100% portable to the new ST_Anything with regards to pin mappings, etc…And….OTA is supported which made it even easier since I had implemented that on his existing rig already. Read on to learn how to get started with ST_Anything and see how this project became a great solution for DaVinci’s Den.”
