Re: Motion sensor and deep sleep mode questions

On the vibration sensor, I think you need a power supply with a shutdown pin and a timer circuit. The sensor triggers the timer circuit which applies voltage to the shutdown pin causing the ESP8266 to boot, when the timer runs out, the pin is pulled low causing the power to shut off. Use MQTT / Mos...
