Re: Capacitive Rain Sensor

@shardan,

Nice project. Thank you for sharing.

@martinus,

I have been using PME plugin for multi channel AC dimmer since you introduced it.It opened up possibility of lot more hardware implementation as ESP lacks pins and it is cheaper than in some cases external ADCs.

Thanks.

Re: Design for power supply from source >12V low quiescent current

This could be solution to your problem. It uses 380 nA current. Threshold voltage of 8.5 V or 10.8 V. Reset output below threshold is maximum 5.5V. Cost less than $1.
