Creating a paper-mail to email gateway

#1 Post by Gilles » 16 Dec 2019, 08:14

I was reading the project : https://www.letscontrolit.com/wiki/ind ... ifications , you now recommend to use a esp-12F. I suppose that it is because it has 4MB memory. Unfortunately, it has not a connector for an external wifi antenna (the ESP07-S has), useful when the mailbox if far away from the internet box.

Is there any hardware reference that you could recommend along with an esp_easy release?

Thanks
Gilles

Differences between ESP-12F and ESP-07S:

- IPEX connector instead of PCB antenna
- some fewer pins on ESP-07s (which is no problem as they are not recommended for ESPEasy anyways)

Besides this the ESP-07S and ESP-12F are same!

Just use an ESP-07S, do NOT use the older ESP-07 as it has 512KB memory only.
