ESP-SENSOR

Post by Pako » Sun Jun 24, 2018 7:45 am

I have continued to work with ESP8266.
This time, I actually just upgraded my previous project (ESP-SOCKET).
I realized that the capabilities of ESP8266 were very little used there. That's why I added the HTU-21D sensor to the design.
Now the whole device can be used (for example) as a thermostat.
You can find all the material on my GitHub again.

Yes it is true.
We have such a proverb - "Za málo peněz hodně muziky" ("A lot of music for just a pittance") and that is very relevant in this case.
I like the fact that it is enough to add just a few components (and some coding) and unexpectedly smart and powerful devices can be created.

my only gripe with them is the power consumption at 500ma on the high side it makes using a battery and keeping a small form factor impossible. I guess it's because of the trade off for transmitting distance. I know with micropython you have the ability to sleep and wake the esp's from code. I do not know about doing it from c code. but with a 80 mhz RISC processor overclockable to 160 mhz and a lot of ram for it with ample storage in such a small footprint really opens up a world of possibilities
