Finding the time.

#1 Post by Hairyloon » 16 Jul 2019, 13:53

I'm wanting my ESP to know the time. I've got an I2C clock chip, which is one option, but it occurs to me that if it's connected to a network, then it should be able to simply ask a time server.
Is that possible, and if so how?

Tools => Advanced => check NTP

That's all (don't forget to save)

Thank you, that was almost too easy... except it's on GMT when I'm on BST...

Next after "NTP setting"

Ok, now that that's sorted, what shall I do with these RTC chips? ;)
