Gecko Habitat Monitor and Thermostat

Geckoprojectfinal SKHdLijVA9

Neat project from John Hart up on Hackster.io.

Soooo….Wifey decided that it was time for a new pet. Spin the wheel….A Spotted Gecko!! Well, Geckos are apparently very temperature sensitive creatures so we invested in a UTH (Under Tank Heatpad) for those of us that are new to the world of reptiles. The purpose of said UTH is to provide warmth from below, to about 1/3rd of his enclosure…in this case a 10 gallon aquarium for the time being. The geckos like their bellies warm when they sleep from what I understand. This UTH only has ON/OFF and no temperature regulation. The thought of needing to check it every hour 24X7 and turning it on or off depending on his comfort wasn’t gonna happen (nothing personal Mr. Gecko but ‘been there done that’ with my own human babies 20 years ago, please no more)…sooooo…ENTER ARDUINO and ESP8266 (and a few other goodies)! Automation of the temperature monitoring and regulating, and hosting a web page to display the current temperature statuses to any internet browser. Mr. Leonardo Gecko is happy…as am I!
