Re: Control some 5Volt leds with mqtt

Just a small comment. It's best practice NOT to have a leading '/' when using MQTT. It should be changed in the default settings of ESPEasy.

Re: SONOFF S20 : Disable the blue and circle green lights

The green LED is physically connected together with the relay to GPIO12. So remove the LED or put something black over it.

Your rule is only needed if you wish to switch the relay by button or other means. My examples take the published status coming from ESP Easy and updates your switch according to the status.

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.
