Re: IR Transmitter ?

How about an IR Repeater ?

Then it doesn't matter about protocols , does it ?

Many of us have lots of ESP's that we can put around the house and utilise a common receiver to control
appliances in a different room.

Or am I being too presumptuous?

Re: upload espeasy with arduino, no AP

Unless you are like me and dont have a massive house therefore needing dhcp is not an option..
You dont have mulit-subnet capabilities by the look of it.

For me, a static IP. The choice is yours.

Re: upload espeasy with arduino, no AP

You have default ip settings as false therefore it will probably default to the 192.168.4.x subnet

Change it to true and recompile.

I dont think an AP will be available as the settings have been modded.

Connect the RX to TX pin on the converter and use a comms program to check if it loops back

Right. Back to basics. The Sonoff is not programming at all. If it gave you the three errors then nothing went in. It will not part program. Its all or nothing. In the Arduino IDE did you install the ESP8266 addon? It is a library that you down load. At least I think it is. Has been a long time sinc...

Are you using a separate 3.3v psu, USB - Serial adaptors only supply a small current. You said you had a working Sonoff, just power that up as you would if you were programming it, then try the Com Port to set your wifi settings. Try uploading a different revision i.e 78, as I had a few compile erro...

Ah right,

when you program your Sonoff, just leave it in place.
Using the IDE, open the Com port on the top right.

Then manually add settings to the Sonoff using the command input routines

Re: ESPeasy not that easy?

Coolremote, just a quick question.

Why would you need a power supply to power the Sonoff Modules. ?

They are self powered when connected to the mains, I am bemused.

Glad you got them working though.

People on here know their stuff, I am still learning.

Hi Klaus,

All I used was the Arduino IDE on Windows 7.

Then recompile and send it to the ESP.
