ADAFRUIT WEEKLY EDITORIAL ROUND-UP
We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.
This is the last week to sign up for the ADABOX 13, Halloween box. All we can say is that it for-sure is scary 🙂 JOIN US!
Create your own secure Smart Home Hub with HASSio, MQTT, Node Red, and more…
Support for over 1400 devices means that just about every type of Smart Home device will likely work from consumer products like Hue, Lifx, Google Home, Alexa, Ecobee, Z-Wave, WeMo, IKEA Trådfri, and so many DIY devices that use things like Python or MQTT. Most IoT projects that use the ESP8266 or ESP32 can be tied into this system as easily as connecting to Adafruit.io.
