Re: optimyze deep sleep with PCF8591

I like the idea, but it's way beyond my skills ! Thanks for your input.

Would use a GPIO "high on boot" such as SD2 or SD3 help me in your mind? I will test and let you know

Re: optimyze deep sleep with PCF8591

I agree with your idea, but I was looking for something more elegant. The led is only draining mildly the battery, I would like to make sure there is not something more consuming running in the background (and is most likely consuming much more than the led).

Hello all, I'm working on a project I called "growinator" (esp + PCF8591 with 4 soil moisture sensors) :D I will use the deep-sleep model, but I noticed that when in sleep mode, the LED on the PDF8591 is still on (therefore draining the battery).

Re: Need some help with a PCA9685 to pilot a LED ribbon

I used the espesy GPIO directly to control the transistor and it works perfectly fine.

However, I would like to understand why I can't get the PCA9685 to work.
Do I need to had a small transistor between the one controling the 12v Leds and the PCA ?
Any idea what I should do to get it to work ?
