Back to Tentacles


BigClown Remote Tentacle allows you to read various data and send it to your Flow. It has a modular sensor architecture (sensors in BigClown world are called Tags). BigClown Remote Tentacle does not have the ability to connect itself to the internet (therefore to the Anemone Cloud) directly. You will need to connect it wirelessly to the BigClown Base Tentacle or directly to the BigClown USB Dongle.

How to build


The following components are needed for your BigClown Remote Tentacle:

  1. 1x The Core Module
  2. 1x The Tag Module
  3. 1x The Battery Module
  4. 4x The AAA battery

You can add up to 8 individual sensor tags as needed.

BigClown Remote Station

On the other hand BigClown Remote Tentacle is the ONLY Tentacle which can operate completely wirelessly. It can collect data and send them over radio. It is povered by four AAA batteries.

BigClown Tentacles are more complex, versatile and robust than the low-cost tentacles based on NodeMCU v2. BigClown Tentacles have industrial quality. But all of this comes for a cost. BigClown Tentacles are also more expensive.

You can find more about the BigClown devices on the BigClown website.
