Coffee Machine with ESPEasy

#1 Post by pw444 » 23 Apr 2019, 15:50

Hi all,

after digging and reading a lot, and having the choices of Tasmota, Espurna and ESPEasy, i decided for ESPEasy.

As an absolute beginner, i will begin with making my coffee machine manageable.

So, the device have three push buttons (1 for 1 to 6 cups, 1 for 7 to 12 cups and 1 for off),

When i push either 1 or 2, led lits until it finnish or OFF is pushed, when led get off.

What i plan:
3 GPIO (output) from ESP8266 to the push buttons (easy, either via voltage divider or opto coupler) and 1 GPIO hooked from the LED (input).

So, i will need to write the rules in order that the outputs for the push buttons (1 and 2) tells me, initially by web access that the machine in on and to notify me when led if off (when coffee is ready).

Later i will habe it also have it controlled by Home Assistant or Openhab (i'm still digging to decide which one, as i do not plan to have it on a cloud server, by a private server at home).

Is there any example in how to get it done (similar)?

All the help and hints are very welcome by this newbee.

Thx in advance!

Paul

Thank you,

i took a look and those are more sofisticated machines than mine :lol:

So, i defined gpio 12 and gpio 13 output low and defined gpio 14 as input.

When to make coffee, gpio 12 or 13 depending on selection will get high, triggering the physical push button and led on coffee machine will light on, and so gpio 14 will get high.

So, i need to create two virtual switches in devices and have the rule for each one, which will notify the start of the task and also a rule for the gpio 14, also a virtual switch, as OFF (low) and when HIGH (led on) waits for it to get off (LOW) notifying the end of the task.

As i understand, and please correct me if i'm wrong, the rules are like the routines called inside the loop in an arduino sketch.

TIA

Best bet is to go for a coffee machine that starts you coffee from scratch, meaning beans to be grinded.

So most of the machines with pads/pods/etc ... are a lesser choice and if on top you need 2 cups at once. Also some punch your pod in advance etc etc

On the other hand, for me this type of project just involves a lot of geekery... usefulness ?

But then why are here ! :twisted:
Belgium and land of ESP ... counting :D
