Re: nodemcu with 8input and 8output (pcf8574)

i mean where i should connect input and output considering GPIO of nodemcu and 16 gpio of MCP23017 ? I imagine you can hook it up in whatever way is easiest. Use it for relays and switches and you could free up some GPIO in the nodemcu for other uses. You only need 2 GPIO for the I2C bus. You can a...

Why not use an MCP23017? 16 inputs or outputs or any mixture. Also much more output current available.

Re: Issue with PCF8574 & Relays

Do the relays need a ground signal or a positive signal to actuate? The PCF8574 can deliver way more current with a ground signal than a positive signal.
This may or may not be the problem but something to check.

Or a dedicated PWM output chip module.

Not sure you need the ADS1115 here as I am still a bit confused as to what the ESP is actually doing here. You say you want to send these analog values TO the ESP. I assume they then go out to a dimmer of some sort?

Maybe a picture or a diagram or schematic would be helpful.

Maybe not the most elegant solution but you could emulate the button presses with pulses from a relay or maybe transistors connected via a store bought relay board or a homemade board piggy backed onto your thermostat board. Just need 4 gpio outputs connected to the tact switches on your board.
