Reference project for the upcoming homepage

#1 Post by grovkillen » 25 Oct 2018, 08:53

We're interested in adding reference projects to our new homepage that we're working on. If you have something that is up and running we'd like to hear about it. If we like it extra much you will be featured as a reference project in the official ESP Easy home page.

Some extra credit if you got something like this: https://www.brewpi.com/ running 100% ESP Easy :)

But don't let that brewing project make you think that we're looking for "professional" projects, we'd love to hear about it all!

hi Grov,

of course i'm interested :-)
All my projects are availlable for the new page, including those i'm working on at the moment.

I'll be back at home on Monday 5th November, then we might sort some photos etc.
What do you need for the page? I'm writing some documentation for the project wiki,
but that might be a bit of overload for the webpage. Just short description?
Or maybe a 'teaser' text only and reffering to project wiki?

Availlable now or in near future:
- Roomsensor, usable with bmp180 or bme280., luminosity sensor, display and buzzer
- Roomsensor, addotional carbon monoxide sensor
- IR transceiver
- PMS7003 aerosol sensor
- 4Ch relay for mains switching
- Outdoor sensor
All have PCBs availlable.

On the bench are a capacitive rain sensor and a lightning detector, both using a
small Atmel ATtiny coprocessor, PCB's will be availlable as soon as testing etc is done.
God, give my day 48 hours .... :-) If necessary I'll make ready programmed ATtinies availlable.
Regards
Shardan

Great shardan! We want it all. And yes, only short descriptions with one descriptive picture would be ideal. I want it to be in a easy to overview display on the page ;)

Hmmmmmmm..

Should I mount one bigger and two or three small pictures into one
showing ready item and insights?
I'll prepare some text descriptions these days.

Another question just for my curiosity:
How about icons showing things like "uses SMD parts", which experience / difficulty level,
using of mains voltage, time to build and such?

Hi
I've got various 'small' projects I've done with my IoT students.
I can send you the PDFs if you want?

Cheers from David

Pictures can be taken care of later. I mostly need info about what kind of projects you got. So please describe the project in general terms and I'll get them sorted and will be able to ask for more uniform information.

Sure, this is what I have on a 2017 file (sorry, a little English/Dutch mixture).
My first ESP project. Running ESPEasy_v2.0.0-dev11 modified for 24 tasks.
Built 4 of these units, #2 for my house, #2 for my brothers house.

In the wiki I posted few of the project I've already finalized and I do have few more I'm working with but still under testing...
Have a look and let me know if you want to include any of them and eventually if you need more picures or better/different descriptive text:

Up to you "master" :) the boards have anyway different concept, as the small one is very very simple (GPIOs driving relays via transistor) while the big one uses MCP23017 expander with 8 output GPIOs (to the relays via darlington array) and 8 input GPIOs (for optional push buttons to control the 8 relays) leaving all ESP8266 GPIOs free (beside 2 for I2C communication of course!)...

@grovkillen
This possible reference project:
https://www.letscontrolit.com/forum/vie ... 978#p32739
is now impossible to build, It needs at least 20 tasks.
https://github.com/letscontrolit/ESPEas ... -432168958
We will not make an official release for more than 12 tasks......
The use of variables........in some cases releasing a lot of task numbers
This argument is not applicable for DS18B20 sensors, each one needs its own task.
Sampling every minute gives a low load and no memory problems.

I regret this decision.

Maybe the Dallas plugin could handle up to 4 DS18B20 units? If say that something like that would be more logic than adding more tasks.

Makes not much sense in my opinion.

On one side more and more sensors can be connected, on the other side it is not even possible to fully use
a simple MCP23017 as input?
Castrating the DS18B20 plugin down to max 4 sensors (1wire can handle up to 100!) is the solution?

In the long run this will show more and more as a show stopper.

Shardan, you're suggesting we restructure the entire settings binary? The ESP82XX is not suitable for more tasks given the current memory allocation inside the memory/settings structure. Many plugins could have more than one value (i.e. 4) plus a lot more settings. The Dallas plugin only use one of these possible values.

That implies also 4 IDX'en per task to get the data to a controller.
#20 DS18B20 sensors would cost only 5 tasks!

It would also solve the limitation of the new extended "Generic - System Info" Task, now only one value can be send.

But .. is it do-able?

Maybe not in a heart beat (4 IDX per task) but we have the settings space for it.

I know, Grov.
And for now a stable release is more im portant, I agree.

But on the long run this will be necessary. It's not only sensors and such that get limited..
Rules can use dummy variables - limited by tasks.
Sensors and rules with dummy vars get the system to limits very fast.
