NEW TUTORIAL: Home Automation in the Cloud with the ESP8266 & Adafruit IO

The ESP8266 is an amazing little chip which has onboard WiFi capabilities, an integrated processor, and also comes at less than $10.

This makes it the perfect chip for DIY electronics projects, and especially in the home automation field. There are many breakout boards available for the ESP8266, but in this guide we are going to use the Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 breakout, which is a very convenient ESP8266 breakout board.

In this project, we are going to use the ESP8266 to build two components which are very useful in home automation: a sensor module, and a lamp controller.

We are also going to link these two projects to Adafruit IO, which will allow you to control this small home automation system from anywhere in the world. Let’s start!

See the full tutorial here.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
