Re: My first Wemos D1 + Easy ESP: need help in wiring

It is very simple.
If all sensors are I2C then connect all SDA together and all SCL together.
Also there must be a a pullup resistor on SDA and one on SCL but probably one or more of your sensor boards do already have a pullup resistor. In that case the external pullups are not needed anymore.

Pulling GPIO2 low with a LED is wrong, you should try to connect the led (with a current limiting resistor ! ) between Vcc and GPIO2. Or better do not use GPIO2 at all and use f.i. GPIO4
When GPIO2 is pulled low during start-up the ESP8266 will not boot-up with ESPEasy but in another sort of mode.
