Temperature sensors using WeMos

Domoticz

After trying for a few months to get mysensors working on a Arduino mini pro with a NRF24L01+ I eventually gave up as the radio was too unstable. Works fine one day and next it loses communication. I tried all the tips and tricks to get these devices stable but had no luck. I now …

ESP8266 + DS18B20 LUA code completed

This LUA code on the ESP works like a bomb – really simple and really stable. The temperature sensors are connected directly to the ESP’s GPIO0 pin. This eliminates the need for an Arduino as all the work is done by the ESP. https://github.com/StormTrooper/ESP8266-Temperature-Sensor

ESP8266 LUA

After having struggled for many days with the instability of the ESP (I almost got some code going which read the DS18B20 sensors and upload the reads via the wifi, but the ESP kept resetting or returning unpredictable results) I did some more reading up and found these clever guys are now using the microcontroller …

ESP8266 Wifi Module

Came across this module while looking at how to connect the Arduino to the net. There are the quick and easy and expensive ways to do it, and then there is a ESP8266. This goes for around £3 on eBay so thought I’d get some of these and see if I can get it working …
