Calling Embedded Engineers, Co-Create New Grove Module Libraries to Work With ESPHome/Home Assistant and Get A Big Hardware Gift Bag.

Last month we released the wiki walk through step-by-step connect Seeed Studio XIAO ESP32C3 with ESPHome running on Home Assistant and send the sensor data/ control devices after connecting Grove modules to XIAO ESP32C3. Currently, we have 38 Grove Modules wikis that can work with ESPHome.

To better support the smart home community, now we are glad to invite engineers to join us to co-create new Grove Module Libraries to work with ESPHome and Home Assistant to promote the ecological construction of ESPHome together. Moreover, we have a number of Grove starter kits/devices up for grabs.

Use your skills to help build smart homes around the world

We’re hosting the New Grove module libraries co-create campaign over the next few months, which will take your skills to help automate homes with Seeed hardware, ESPHome, and the Home Assistant platform. Add module libraries to work with ESPHome or Home Assistant,  build smart home projects with your creation and contribute to documentation or tutorials to have a chance to get a big hardware gift bag.

If your Grove module library for the Home Assistant community is approved by ESPHome, developers will receive the gift bag directly from Seeed Studio.
