Arduino Setup

First, get the Feather Huzzah ESP8266 set up with the Arduino IDE and Adafruit IO.

  • If you haven't yet set up your ESP8266 for use with Adafruit IO and the Arduino IDE, follow along with this guide. The setup only needs to be performed once.

Installing Libraries

We'll want to use the LIS3DH sensor on the Prop-Maker FeatherWing. To do this, we'll install the Adafruit LIS3DH library from the Library Manager.

We'll also want to control the NeoPixel strip. From the library manager, install the Adafruit NeoPixel library.

The code for this example is contained within the  Adafruit IO Arduino Library (make sure your library version is 2.7.22 or later).

From the Arduino IDE, navigate to File->Examples->Adafruit IO Arduino->adafruitio_24_zapier

Next, we'll perform the network configuration required for this sketch.
