Re: Connecting a TM1637 4-Digit Display

I received finally the new 7digit modules with M1637 and new config (6 digits and with decimal dots).
I will try to find some spare time to update the plugin to have support for them, about the SendtoHTTP bug I don't this can be connected but I'll have a look.

Re: Android app for esp easy

Well once you have MQTT broker on a local server (RaspberryPi being the cheapest) I'll advice to go for NodeRed which has a very nice extension to easily build up GUI via WebPages not having to know any language (if you are skilled with java and/or angular you can make awesome things then :) ).

Re: Read button state from deep sleep

@tuxmartin My current idea is use Arduino pro mini at 8MHz for connect power to esp8266 every 4 hours or when button pushed. Arduino need only 23uA: But 23uA for arduino is more than 20uA with only ESP2866 in deep sleep. So only benefit is wakeup not cca per one hour but per 4 hours. In real life/e...

Re: Read button state from deep sleep

I think that better way then using deepsleep is completely battery off state. When someone press button, it will power up ESP, on "on System#Boot do" hold power through gpio with transistor or relay, send event and then, after some time switch ESP itself off. You can run years with one battery set....
