Krydda/Växer Hydroponics System from #IKEA Upgraded with BH1750, ESP8266, Adafruit.io Dashboard

Markus Ulsass has modified his Krydda/Växer hydroponics system that IKEA launched earlier this year to include a BH1750 digital light sensor and ESP8266 for wireless transmission, connected to a dashboard on Adafruit.io. Here’s a quick look at the results.

He’s written more on his blog here about the light sensor and here about the dashboard; and you can see the complete source along with more images and details here at the Project to control IKEA hydroponics repo on GitHub.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
