ESP8266/Arduino Smartthings Bearded Dragon Habitat Controller/Monitor

ESP8266/Arduino Smartthings Bearded Dragon Habitat Controller/Monitor

“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 …

How to build custom IoT hardware with Arduino

How to build custom IoT hardware with Arduino

“Recently I wanted to create an Arduino-based low-power Internet of Things (IoT) device for makers, with built-in sensors that could be used to deliver sensor data from any location to the cloud, and potentially control connected devices such as thermostats, lights, door locks, and other home automation products. Along the way, I learned that creating a new IoT device, from …

DIY Binary Alarm Clock

“Hello reader, What you can see in the pictures, is my little binary alarm clock, that displays the time using 18 individually adressable RGB LED’s. I originally planned to build a “normal” clock that uses Led’s as it’s hands. Unfortunately I did not have 60 adressable RGB LED’s at hand. Sooo, what do you do when …
