Serial MCU controlled switch?

#1 Post by uxhamby » 02 Jan 2021, 22:14

I have a couple of ESP01 8266's that run a custom version of the EE firmware, to accommodate a relay board via a 'DEVICE' listed as "Serial MCU controlled switch". The issue was a non standard relay board from EBAY.

Build 20102 - Mega (ESP82xx Core 2_4_1, NONOS SDK 2.2.1(cfd48f3))
GIT version xuryV0.1

I still see these boards listed on EBAY but I don't see the device listed in the 'DEVICE' offerings of current versions of EE I have running.

What's the current story on this?

Thanks,

Brian H.

Is it the same as supported in P091 ? https://espeasy.readthedocs.io/en/lates ... #p091-page

Looks similar but can't say for sure.

I believe the relay board in question, is one of these:

Looks like lots of work was done but I don't see a resolution emerge. I'm still left wondering: do any contemporary stock builds support this device out of the box?

Thanks

xury just compiled its own version from github sources, i guess it is the same as the old ones with Core 2.4.1:

In theory it will also work with the current P091 plugin that is part of TESTING binaries.

The only question is: Are there the serial commands intact on the secondary MCU? Most of them works in the same way, except some bad batch with messed ASCII command codes as i know.
