How many of you have thought about building your own wireless smart home or IoT solution? There are plenty of manufacturers that offer own wireless controllers: Ajax, Aeotec, Xiaomi, etc. Unfortunately, many of them lock you with their proprietary servers or the price of the controllers is insane.
At the Firebase & IoT codelab, you will have a chance to build your own smart device with ESP8266 Wi-Fi modules and connect it to Firebase to send sensor data, control servo motors, relays, and LEDs.
