I need help, connecting my Adalights to the Internet!

Hi I'm working on a small homeautomation project. So for this I try to connect my Adalight LED(here) to the internet, so I can controll it from my raspberry pi with openHab running. I found this example HERE and thought this could be the way to go. So before I buy the Adafruit ESP8266 HUZZAH board, I wanted to ask here if someone have done something similar. Is there something that could make troubles, trying to connect my Adalight to the Adafruit ESP8266 HUZZAH board? What about the software, could i just use the Adalight Libary or will there be problems? Or do you prefer a diffrent method to connect Adalight to the internet? I will not use the adalight as ambientlight for my tv, just as led!

Kind Regards
