Open Hardware Devices

Anemone platform currently supports two open hardware devices based on nodeMCU v2 by default (we call them Tentacles). But any open hardware device which is capable of using MQTT can be connected to the Anemone Platform.

Right now two low-cost hobby Tentacles based on nodeMCU v2 are supported - a button and display. But support for an industrial quality devices from the BigClown family is coming soon.

Cool 3D printable cases for every Anemone Tentacle can be downloaded from the Anemone Tentacle cases collection on Thingiverse.
