Re: EspEasy MP3 confused

Which ESP board are you using?

The YX5300 needs it's own SD card. I had problems with certain models, so make sure that part works before you troubleshoot elsewhere.

Re: Designing automatic watering system

Got it! Thanks :) To be on the (future expansions) safe side, I'm considering powering the circuit with 12V (the solinoid valve runs on 12V), and having 5V and 3.3V step-downs, each capable of ~2A to supply e.g. D1 Mini pro, ADS1115, sensors/relays etc..

Re: Designing automatic watering system

@ThomasB: You seem to have a good insight into designing the electronics. If I power some DS18B20's with 5V, I assume that I also need a level converter for the GPIO?

Re: DS18B20 setup to ignore Extreme data

Having had a huge 1-wire network, I learned the hard way, that 1-wire is not designed for long cable-runs, thus one should use twisted-pair cables, minimize number of connectors and avoid running 1w cables in parallel with mains cables.
