⚠️ ⚠️ ⚠️ ARTIK Cloud has been depcreciated by Samsung ⚠️ ⚠️ ⚠️

Here we create an ESP8266/32 based device that emulates a RGB LED light using NeoPixels, which connects to ATRIK cloud. ARTIK cloud connects to smart home assistants like Google Home, Amazon Alexa, etc.

Connecting to Samsung ARTIK Cloud https://my.artik.cloud/

GitHub: debsahu/ARTIKCloud

An application made for ESP8266 to comunicate with ARTIK Cloud

  • Connects to ARTIK Cloud via MQTT SSL port 8883
  • ARTIK Cloud is connected to all assistant platforms, integration is seamless
  • Compiles on ESP8266-arduino core v2.4.2, v2.5.0-beta3, git version
